80legs is a service platform for web crawling and processing web content. The 80legs API gives developers a simple programmatic interface with access the functionality that 80legs provides outside of the web portal. This is a fee based service.
What could you do if you were spidering two billion web pages per day? Whatever your answer is to that hypothetical, you might as well do it now. The 80legs platform lets you write your own web crawler and sell your apps to users (our 80legs API profile). And if you can build it fast, there's an 80legs contest looking for your entry.
