    A good friend of mine is a wicked PHP/MySQL coder. He works with me and writes web-based databases for a living.

    He wants to work on some private projects and I just wondered if there are any particular systems or online tools that there might be a demand for - for example I was thinking something like an online unique content scraper/generator, but I think that one has been done by someone else here recently...

    What about a system to perform statistical analysis on data acquired by a search engine spider?. Much like the big SEO tool providers are doing. There are good open source web spider/search engines out there, the problem is, their programmers are not business oriented. The hard work (data collecting core) is already written by experts (ie. SeekQuarry) and such platforms can work in a distributed environment, say, a modest cluster of 10 dedicated servers.

    P.S. A lifetime complimentary membership to your service once you get it running would be really appreciated ;).

    Good idea. What exactly are you thinking of-- like back-links analysis or what?

    The thing is... you can do cross-analysis of ANYTHING you can think of. Backlinks are but a possible variable :).

    Sure you can do analysis on anything. The thing is it should make financial sense. The cost of bandwidth, storage and processing power for a www-wide spider and indexer is not trivial.

    Very true. I was thinking something smaller scale -- as I said article scraping, content generator, rank checker something like that...

    Seriously thinking about doing a content scraper and spinner.

    Thinking about scraping based on keyword, then spinning by paragraph and by word.

    I know there are tools on the Market that do this. But wondering if people think it's a useful idea, if there are features that are not currently available, and any other ideas/recommendations...?

    I can't PM.

    Did your friend do the work for subster?

    I have an awesome idea that's similar (but completely different) and would like to talk to your friend if he did.

    Can you PM me his email address?

    Edited to add: He can't get you on skype. He has PMd you my email address.
