Web Scraper Required

I have a quick and easy task for someone who knows what they're doing.

I need a bot / script or macro built to scrape blog posts from various blogs.

I am new to [url removed, login to view] but have been a long term employer on Odesk with excellent feedback. Search for "alastairevans" or "Small Giants" to see.

Ideally this bot will look on all blog frameworks - wordpress, drupal, typepad etc...

I need the scraper to put together a excel / csv ouput which contain post titles and post urls. I then need the scraper to scrape the blog post itself and save as small file type. The end goal is to compile all blog posts into a single readable file (e.g. pdf).

I would like to run the scraper on my Mac but if that is not possible, then a PC based scraper will be OK.

Further information on what I need is provided in this short video. I would STRONGLY encourage you to watch it if you want to be awarded this job - [url removed, login to view]

If you are interested in applying for this job, please answer the following questions:

1.) Explain clearly how you will build the scraper and include any limitations your scraper may have (i.e. things in my video which you can't do).

2.) Will your bot / script / macro work on a Mac?

3.) I am looking to make this scraper as fast, efficient and easy to use as possible. Are there any additional features which you would include in your scraper to achieve this?

4.) What is the phrase I asked you to include and which I mention at the end of my video?

I will award this job to the lowest bidder. If I receive two matching low bids, I will take Freelancer feedback into account.

If you can do a successful job for me I will leave you excellent, detailed feedback - take a look at some of recent feedback I have left other contractors :)

In addition to this, I have other bots / scripts which I need building and if you do a good job for me I will be very happy to give you further work in the future.

Many thanks and I look forward to receiving your bid.
