    Hi there every1 lately i was looking into coding and programing some simple bots,on that process i discovered i like scraping...I can scrape or deep crawl or execute javascript if needed to extract even more info from almost any website i want,text manipulation also was never a problem...Atm im just scraping for fun and testing my abilities.

    Do u guys have any suggestions what i can do with that skill,can i monetize it somehow??? Or is this thing that every person can do?

    It's definitely a beneficial skill. Not scraping, but coding. You will find that the more deeper you get into SEO and blackhat, the more coding is required. I would rather say that being able to code a bot is the better skill to have here. Scraping as a skill is "saturated", if I can call it that, for that theres ScrapeBox :)

    BUT you can build some great analytical and statistic orientated content by scraping the right data. Look for public data and see what use you can put to it. I know Google has a list of all business (and loads more data) of certain areas /countries or something like that. Scrape that, populate a website with it, start the next Yelp ;)
