WaxJelly Blog:
The easiest way to scrape details from a MySpace profile page with PHP
March 20, 2007 @ 10:41:00

From the WaxJelly blog today comes a handy bit of code for anyone out there looking to scrape details from just about any MySpace page out there (quick and easy).

It's amazing how just a little optimization on the part of myspace makes crawling their site so much easier. We're going to scrape the user detail (name, age, sex, etc..) from a profile, using the header info...

The script grabs the contents of the given URL, loops through, pulls out the meta tag information and uses that as a key to grab the rest of the user's information (including name, age, city, state, etc).
