    I'm surprised it took this long to see a thread looking for a scraper for Yahoo Voices after that announcement the other day.

    If anyone wants all the links to articles, grab them here - up to date as of about 10 minutes ago when the link grabber finished. Just writing the article grabber now.

    Code:
    https://www.mediafire.com/?k74zuu4rmme61mu
    
    All files are n the format <month>-<year>.txt

    Might be handy if you know what keywords you want and they appear in the article title.

    If you're looking for a custom bot, let me know your budget.

    Does this mean that all articles on Yahoo Voices will be 100% (or near it) non-duplicate since Voices is closing? Like, scrape article and re-post it on your site before someone else does?

    Ok - as I am in a good mood (although I will take any beers you want to throw at me!), here is a basic scraper. You will need the files I posted above. Select which files to use, what folder to save to and hit go - then walk away for a long time :)

    VT:
    Code:
    https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/3a1798b8989bd12042b0fd05fa4d095ea655ee6de42a104d933c01a987ca2a86/analysis/1404587091/
    
    Download:
    Code:
    https://www.mediafire.com/?mq97920dl46a77w
    

    Not guaranteeing that this will work 100% but it will slip the articles which are video based - made this in about 20 minutes so may have bugs but I have a taxi coming to take me to the pub to watch the football!!

    Like I said, hope it helps someone, if it does, mine is a beer please ;)

    *EDIT* Will keep an eye on this thread via the phone before the game starts and I go blind on beer. Won't be able to update anything but can answer questions if needed

    Sorry for noobish question guys but do have to wait to untill these articles are deindexed from google? because if we dont, it will be plagiarism.

    Yep. Wait for them to be de-indexed and then load 'em on to your site.

    I just tried this and it works. :)

    I was able to scrape the article content.

    I wonder if this can also scrape the title of the article.
