    Harvest and bulk upload zip code specific data for Wordpress business directory plugin. I want the data harvested from either yelp or google places or yellow pages. Ideally all 3 merged would be pissah.

    I know there are people who have done this before that can get it done for me cheaply.

    I am using the business directory plugin The same developer does Yet another wordpress classifieds plugin. The last time they updated it they gave an option for bulk upload via a spreadsheet.

    I need someone to scrape me the most complete list of businesses in all categories in my zip code merge all the information from the multiple sources into a single spreadsheet and then successfully upload the spreadsheet.

    I am still looking for someone to harvest all the businesses in my zip code from multiple sources merge all the info into one .csv so I can upload them into this plugin

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/business-directory-plugin/

    Again I want all the business listings for my zip code taken from yelp,google places,yellow pages etc. merge them into one .csv file for upload into my directory using the above plugin. If you can even get close to what I want please get at me.
