Here’s an intriguing job advert – someone is looking for a freelancer with “experience in data scraping on Rightmove”.
The advertiser is looking for someone with the knowledge on where to find the addresses that are for sale.
Apparently, it is for a direct mail campaign.
The scraping job itself will last less than a week and the pay won’t be great as the advertiser is looking for the lowest possible rates.
Yesterday afternoon, a Rightmove spokesperson said: “It is against Rightmove’s terms and conditions to conduct scraping of the content on our site.
“If scraping is detected or we find or are alerted to job adverts requesting people to scrape Rightmove we take appropriate action.”
