    I was just curious if there existed any market for scraped data?

    I have some data which is basically the list of websites which can be contacted for guest posting because it the scraped data of sellers selling the guest posts of those websites.

    The obvious way to go is contact those websites myself and filter them further for which are up for guest postings on request.

    But I was wondering is that data could be sold the way it is.

    I was working with a guy that was scraping data, but he was collecting all the local businesses, Pinterest, FB, myspace, Instagram follower counts w website and owner name. It sounded good, but no one was really looking to buy that information. There's nothing they can do to make money with it so why buy it. So ask yourself, how can the information I am collecting, going to make my clients money. Keep shifting your hypothesis, until you find something people will kill for lol.
