URL harvesting

Let's follow Site exploration.

<polm> One thing I would recommend is searching Hatena Bookmarks, which is like a Japanese free Pinboard
<polm> Like so: http://b.hatena.ne.jp/entrylist?url=homepage2.nifty.com
<polm> the "of" query parameter paginates like so: http://b.hatena.ne.jp/entrylist?url=homepage2.nifty.com&of=20
<zout> there's some here. https://archive.is/homepage2.nifty.com

Progress

Next steps

  • GoogleScraper is no good. Make attempts at scraping, Bing, Twitter using hints on Site exploration
  • Put chunks of up to 100k URLs onto high speed (20160911.01) ArchiveBot pipelines
