    Need a bot to go onto PistonHeads/ Top Marques/ Autotrader and Gumtree to scrape telephone numbers and persons name.

    So for example it would be a browser of its own so I could have say 50 tabs open to adverts like this :
    Code:
    http://classifieds.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/bmw/e90-3-series-post-05/bmw-330d-245bhp-m-sport-highline-coupe/610405
    and then automatically go through each advert, take the data, and export to excel

    No need custom bot, just use RegEx Extractor :
    Code:
    http://codecanyon.net/item/regex-extractor-extract-everything-simply-/1327433
    You'll extract datas with regular expressions.
    With the future version you'll can use multiple regex in one time (read the "Update 1.1" section on the CodeCanyon page).

    I have coded similar bot for craigslist, see the demo video here
    Code:
    http://www.craigslistscraper.net
    Let me know if you still need the bot, I can build a custom bot that will

    1. Visit search page with your given keyword, For example,
    Code:
    http://classifieds.pistonheads.com/classifieds?Category=used-cars&Keyword=Used+BMW+E90&KeywordCleanedValue=Used+BMW+E90
    and then scrape Ad Title and Phone number.

    If you need contact name too(which is not given in search page, need to scrape details page), then
    1. Visit search page with your given keyword and will collect all ad urls of the page
    2. Scrape all urls collected from process 1 and save required information like Ad title, contact name and phone number.

    Add me to skype: codebreaker911

    Thanks
