Description

Do you ever need Business lists (names, emails, phones,) or Sports odds, or Sports statistics, from the WWW? Then I can probably get them for you. I have extracted odds and statistics for Soccer, Football, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Horse Racing, and tide data for fishermen. I have also extracted many other types of on-line listings (including images), for example: details of real estate agencies.

Each extract is priced depending on the complexity of the website and quantity of odds/stats data required.

All websites are developed and laid out with the language HTML which describes and defines the structure and content of a webpage, plus style-sheets and run-time coding e.g. JavaScript. It is essential to navigate though this code to find the data required. Each website has different HTML code; therefore it is necessary to write a website specific HTML parser in all cases. This parser is used by my automated program suite to extract the data required. There is no way around this step.

I have my own set of automated tools which are controlled by the unique parser script (which I write in vbScript) that visits and extracts from the targeted website(s). Typically I run the extract on my computers, and pass the data in a format acceptable to the customer (for example: database, simple text-file, formatted file (XML, CSV), or spreadsheet).

However, for the more adventurous, the extract tool may be purchased inexpensively and the extracts can be run on any Windows computer, so the customer has complete control over the frequency and timing of the extract process. Documentation exists to assist the customer in processing the extraction task. Unless you know how to write vbScript and understand HTML, then I will still have to do that part of the process for you, but you may run it.
