Find Review Accuracy Only around 40% of CraigsList posting titles have specific products in them. Simply trying the entire posting title, then dropping words off the end gets us 30% of the possible titles.
Problems Google Employee:While the use of Google Web Search to pursue research is a great practice that I want to encourage, creating an automated script to scrape Google search results is a violation of our Terms of Service. The potential for abuse is just too great for Google to allow individual users to scrape results even for research purposes. I hope you understand that this policy was formulated with the best interest of all our users in mind. Google’s biggest fan:This is a highly hypocritical stance for a company whose entire business model is built upon taking data from billions of websites every day WITHOUT permission to do so. Not only does Google take and index copyrighted material from billions of sites daily, they also use an incredible amount of bandwidth - more than any other single company on earth (to my knowledge).
