    Unhappy Seeks help to analyse Sites

    HI guys,

    I need experts to make me understanding something.

    Here is a example of two sites.
    - http://www.livescore.com
    - http://www.activescores.com

    I have always wanted to create my very own livescore site for soccer.
    However, there are something which i do not understand, pls help.

    Results of soccer matches are simultaneously updated. I believe its not manually. But who actually has the data of these livescores.
    They are so many livescore sites that provide so many countries soccer livescore. I just couldn't figure out how did they do it.
    I don't think Webcrawling or spider will do the job as many sites block these scripts.

    Where can i find the raw data of these live scores.

    In Simple, how do i create my very own livescores website.

    Please write to me, if you could help me out. at milanovski@soccersutra.com

    Some free advice:

    This is the first result I got after searching google for "soccer results feed". But you'll need to pay someone to deliver you the results. That stuff is not free.

    I once did this kind of stuff, pulling a news feed from dpa (it came in as email - yuck) and then parsing it and storing it in a DB. thank God for XML.

    They may be using 'blogs'. Check out blogs here:

    After the third time of reading the instructions,
    it finally soaks in to my thick skull.
