“Why write your own spider when you can just use ours?

In order to build Tailrank, we needed to create a spam-resistant and high performance spider (also know as a crawler) to index the blogosphere. This involved spam prevention, language categorization, complex trust ranking, realtime ping support, etc. Needless to say, building a high quality spider is a difficult task.”
