Hourly - Entry Level ($) - Est. Time: Less than 1 week, Less than 10 hrs/week - Posted
We operate in the property industry with our clients being estate agents. Some time ago, we developed an Asp.Net / C # application to simulate the uploading of property listings to Gumtree which meant that our clients could automate the uploading procedure without having to manually do so. Our present application was developed by a Freelancer Consultant who used Fiddler to interpret (scrape) the way that the Gumtree site works: www.gumtree.co.za. Earlier this week, our application began encountering problems with the login procedure due no doubt to Gumtree changing the way that their site is working. We need someone with extensive experience in Fiddler and / or Scraping to debug the code and get it to work again. Also, we would like to add further functionality into this application so that it will work server side, called from a web based parent application / website. Project Urgency: HIGH ESSENTIAL Other Requirements: Contactable on Skype for talking. You must be able to communicate with us easily and effectively.

I'm looking for a regular expression to scrape the URLs that appear on page 1 of Google search results for any search query. I have a Ruby on Rails project where I'm using Nokogiri for scraping. I am grabbing the Google SERP like this: doc = Nokogiri::HTML(open("http://www.google.com/search?q=#{search_keyword}")) Then I get the page 1 search results like this: doc.xpath('//*[contains(concat( " ", @class, " " ), concat( " ", "r", " " ))]//a') This mostly works, but I need to EXCLUDE a couple things: 1) Exclude the excerpt/snippet google sometimes includes as result #1 2) Exclude sitelinks Google sometimes includes under result #1 See the attached pic for examples of these exclusions. At the end of the project, I will consider it a success if I can plug the regex or xpath into Nokogiri and get the desired results based on my specifications.
