S.S.A_SPIDER a sophisticated web scraping script that meticulously searches for and extracts a wide array of data from websites. Here's what Spider specifically looks for in detail:
Email Addresses: Using regular expressions, Spider scans the text of a webpage to find patterns that match email addresses. It's not just about finding a string with an "@" symbol; the script ensures that what it finds conforms to the standard structure of an email address.
Phone Numbers: With a focus on specificity, Spider comes pre-equipped with patterns to recognize phone numbers from specific regions, like Cuban and Miami phone numbers. This means the script can be tailored to look for number formats that match certain locales or business needs.
Files of Interest: The script seeks out links to files with certain extensions, such as PDFs, Word documents, Excel sheets, and multimedia files like MP3 and MP4. This feature is particularly useful for gathering resources, documentation, or media from a given site.
Domains and URLs: Spider parses the HTML content to extract every link on a page. It then analyzes the structure of these links to capture domain information. This is especially useful for uncovering the network of a site, understanding its structure, and identifying potential areas of interest.
Physical Addresses: The script can recognize strings that follow the pattern of street addresses. This function can be a boon for businesses that rely on geographic data for delivery services, market analysis, or logistics.
Social Security Numbers (SSNs): Although handling such sensitive data requires caution and compliance with legal regulations, Spider has the capability to identify strings that match the pattern of SSNs.
Names: Leveraging the natural language processing power of spaCy, Spider can discern and extract names from the text. This is a step beyond simple pattern matching; it involves understanding the context to identify proper nouns that represent people's names.

Depth Search: Spider doesn't just stop at the surface. It digs deeper into the site by following links to a specified depth, giving a comprehensive collection of data from not just the initial page but also from linked pages.
Scraping GPS: The script respects a list of domains to exclude from its search, ensuring that it doesn't collect data from sites that would result in a loop. Our crawler smartly bypasses irrelevant domains, ensuring optimal use of resources and time. It's like having a GPS that knows exactly where to go and where not to, saving you from unnecessary detours.
User-Agent Randomization: To mimic the behavior of different browsers and prevent being blocked by websites, Spider rotates through various user-agent strings, making its requests appear to come from different sources.
Signal Handling: To prevent runaway processes, Spider uses signal handling to set a time limit on its operations, ensuring that it stops after a reasonable period defined by the user.
Interactive Customization: Before beginning its crawl, Spider seeks user input to customize its operation, such as the start URL, maximum depth for the crawl, time limit for the operation, and the preferred language for NLP tasks.
