I am not new to programming, but am not an expert either. For an upcoming project, we are looking to do the following:
1. A back-end web app/script that can read text from a blog post (in particular, read the keywords of the headline or title of the blog post, or if there are tags in a tag cloud for the blog post, read the tags) and then subsequently automatically search Google using these keywords or tags. We want to collect the top three (3) Google Search results and then post it in a separate HTML page.
2. For example, here is a possible blog post:
iPhone vs the Google Phone: Who Wins?
iPhone is the best phone. google phone is not the best phone. on and one, ad infinitum, etc etc, this is the blog post here. etc etc.
3. The web app/script needs to read the headline and pick out the keywords (i.e. iPhone, Google Phone)- notice that it needs to know to pick out the phrase "Google Phone" and not just 'Google' or 'Phone' separately.
4. Then the app/script will search Google for these keywords and then collect the links for the top three (3) search results and then make a simple HTML page that displays the links for the Google searches.
I know there's a lot of information here, but I just want to know what languages (perl, php?) should be used to do something like this. What is the flow of information and how would such an app/script(s) be built?
Thanks for all your help. This forum is great!
