Parse website and extract information from tabs

BlackWidow scans websites (it's a site ripper). It can download an entire website, or download portions of a site.

Parse website and extract information from tabs

Post by neronet » Fri Oct 03, 2014 7:00 pm

I'm brand new at this and looking for general guidance on how to setup my search.

I'm trying to parse http://www.hudhomestore.com/Home/Index.aspx and download specific information. So say I am looking within Indiana, I want to parse each property listing and find the corresponding listing broker information for each property (identified as a case #). An example would be for the property with case number #151-316799, 3625 Payton Ave
Indianapolis, IN, 46226, I want to download the corresponding listing broker information.

I'd like to eventually compile this information into an excel spread sheet for each state.

This is not something BlackWidow can do. It can only find pages and download them, along with other files like images etc.

Our BrownRecluse is what you need for this job. It's a programmable spider, so we can extract the data from the pages and save that in a text file that can then be imported into Excel.
