    I've been honing my scraping skills over the last few months and can now get some vast info. Some of it, I need for my projects, some of it I don't. Is there a demand for any of the following:

    Full sitemaps of very large websites (directories, magazines)
    Database of full Amazon categories
    Database of directory sites listings
    Database of regional job listings
    Database of Alibaba sellers (by category or region)
    Anything similar

    It's very time consuming so I don't want to start gathering info not related to my projects if it's not something I'm going to be able to shift. What's your thoughts? Worth it or not?

    I would say that you might earn some bucks if you are able to further process the data and match them with existing demands.
    I.e. the database of regional job listings could be used to generate info-pages.

    Other than that you could always try to extract a lot of contact information and sell those.
