I am looking for someone to create a dataminer for the Overture Search Term tool ( [url removed, login to view] ).
What I need is to be able to enter a search term, the application that is then created would search on that term as well as all other links that come up.
The application would then write the data to a text file which I need to be able to import into excel.
The data that would be mined and written to the text file would be the count and the search term.
As an example, if I search on the word cars, some of the entries that would show up and subsequently be written to the text file are:
Count Search Term
6959671 new car
182487 car max
246 auto car max superstore
The application must work on the windows platform, including XP and Windows 98.
The key is that the application must collect the data for all the links under a given term that is searched.
Codehorse wrote something like this, only his tool (at least the one on the url) doesn't log the count and doesn't write it to a text file ( you can see his work at <[url removed, login to view]> ).
Hopefully someone will be able to get back to me with bid this evening, but if not, I will respond in 3 days when I get back into town (unless of course I have an internet connection at my hotel).
I am also requesting that along with the completed application, I would want the source code. This is so that if Overture ever changed their url, it would hopefully be easy for me to just update the url in the source code.
Payment would be via paypal upon completion of the work and verification that the code is bug free and works as agreed upon.
