Automate news seacrh from other websites

P: n/a
Hi.
Everyday of my life the last year has started by searching through a
lot websites in order to find the latest news, and then making a link
to that news from my webpage. What I have always dreamt about is some
kind of automation.

Is it possible to make a script in ASP that searches through a website
and gathers info on title, URL and such, and then automatically
inserting it into my website (via for instance a SQL database)?

Looking forward to your answers.

extract the bits you are interested in.

Thanks!
It really worked...

Also, if someone out there has problems with international characters
when outputting the result, try putting this in your ASP-code:

Response.Charset = "latin1"

Then the charset is forced to "latin1" (iso-8859-1), but you can use
other values as well. Consult MSDN for valid values.
