ThumbCrawl - Web Crawl with five custom URLs for $24

What is a Web Crawl?

A robot program that systematically browse specific web pages to learn what each page on the website is about, so this information can be indexed, updated and retrieved when a user makes a search query.  Web crawlers begin crawling a specific set of known pages, then follow hyperlinks from those pages to new pages.

{FYI...Google and Bing Crawls the internet nightly on a very large scale, they determine what you actually see.  In addition, Robots.txt will be observed.}

  – The batch scrip in the request will perform  an n=3 looping iteration/depth.


The Crawl will be performed using the Open Source Nutch-Apache tech stack. The tools used will use common open source tools and follow common crawl rules (robots.txt observed). No customization will me made on my search configuration, so it will be a non-biased/ influenced return of finding using these tools.  {Honest results with no results/marketing gaming. Second point, if you are a non-profit, start-up or small education/civil group, happy to waive the fee - my decision.}
