I need a program that will search on line classified ads and put a few items of data from each ad into a spread sheet.
There are several ways to do this but I will explain one way to give you a better idea of what I need. It does not have to be done this way I just need the results this way gives. Here are the steps:
1) There are about 5 websites in this niche classified segment that I would want the public data from and I would supply you with the URLs of those sites.
2) I could manually input the few search filter items I need for the search I would do on each site (I would prefer a way where I would not have to do this manually each time for each site)
3) Once I got the search results from a site I would need just a few items from each classified ad (including phone numbers) copied onto a spreadsheet.
4) Once all 5 website's data is on a spreadsheet I would need to consolidate that data and delete all duplicates.
That would be about it.
It would be important that I put the program through tests to insure it produces the desired results as defined above.
I would also like to have someone that I could have an ongoing relationship with (as needed) to make modifications to this program as changes were made to certain public websites we gather data from. But this part is not critical if you just want to create the program.
