    It takes ages to scrape ezinearticles and huge effort to scrape clean content from blogs or other sources. The wikipedia database is nice but not that thing I am looking for. There are some content databases for sale, but hard to say if they are worth the money.

    I am willing to pay for them but certainly also thankful for free alternatives. Requirement: huge, huge and huge and CSV, mysql, whatever database format.

    Thanks a lot,
    cooooookies

    Hey, I have scraped a fair few websites over my time and I am looking at maybe ridding of the databases I create.

    I have a huge mySQL DB of gadget and technology news. All sorted nicely by category, title, content, unique url, all images etc. Theres over 2000 articles and it scrapes daily. It also has gadget and technology reviews, currently at 300 and this scrapes daily too.

    I have googled for article titles and only the original site (and one other) has these articles (although it is a huge mainstream website that the content originally came from).

    Overall the DB is 34mb (this is just text).

    I also have a database of over 1000 free font downloads and 500 photoshop brushes and there relevent descriptions for each. These both update automatically also and have websites pumping out the data and SEOing well.

    What value would you place on such things. I'm a novice at making money doing this sort of thing but a pro stealing content :D.

    Thanks for any help!
    Matt

    So you think your database is huge :D

    Not wanna running into the length comparison debate, but I'd say your db is for most BH purposes TINY. lol

    I have every business in the USA (~4m) with addresses, phone numbers contact details and sectors as well as email list of a few million of these.

    Make me an offer - only selling 10 of them. It's around 1gb or so and in CSV format by state (so 50 or so states) I can sell separate states if that what you want. Paypal.

    Well 15+ automatic spun articles a day is good enough for me at the moment! May not be enough for your BH needs but theyre good enough to give me quality WH content on top of my unique articles!

    Do you have spun articles available - if so, PM me - I might be interested in purchasing some.

    Heck - PM me if you are interested in selling some/all of your content.

    I'll make it easy - you tell me how much you want for whatever you decide you are willing to sell.
