I need someone really smart in PHP to improve a small web crawler (to fill a classifieds search engine).
The software already exists, but it needs some improvments to make it faster, and some others websites need to be add to that crawler.
The software consists in detecting a the pattern of the content of given websites, and then, take the content and send it to a interface that will store it in a database. the software doesn't access directly to the database. It just send requests to another software in charge of storing all in database.
Applicants must have good knowledge in PHP; I will need to know what you have already done in PHP befre, because, I want somebody really fast in developping the crawler.
The price must be given for each website pattern detected, or for a number of day of work on the problem. I'm open to both
