Pretty simple project.
I will give you a URL which contains a search form. This form has about 10 fields but you will simply be searching using last name of "smith" with first name of "john"
Your script will then crawl the results page. The results page only shows the first 100 results. Each result contains a link that goes to a profile page for that specific result.
Your scraper will then grab the profile page and pull about about 20 relevants substrings. Stuff like first name, last name, address, city, state, postal code, email address, etc.
Your scraper will then place this data into a simple single mysql table. I could care less about fully normalized tables.
This is a quick and simple job.
Please be aware that the site does use a cookie to track, and your scraper must be able to store and persist this same cookie through its scraping.
There is no login required
Feel free to use functions from php5x.
Once I receive the code and verify it works, I will transfer the full amount into escrow.
I have other scraping jobs after this and if you do a good job here, we can talk about doing those as well for more money.
