The SEOMiner (http://www.minerazzi.com/seominer) can be used to illustrate the power of recursively crawling sites and social networks with Minerazzi.

In general, the goal of Minerazzi is to turn searchers into data miners. We try to accomplish this with dozen of tools the platform comes with.

For instance, we have two complementary tools: Recrawl It (a url crawler) and Search Inside (a link crawler). In this post, we want to discuss Search Inside so you could grasp its power.

Go to the seominer (http://www.minerazzi.com/seominer) and search for [ sesconference.com ] to find said site link. Click the Search Inside icon (a black square of contiguous arrows) of that result.

You should see a list of external and internal links. In the internal links list, locate the SES London result and again click the Search Inside icon this time located at the right of said result. The tool will retrieve more results.

By recursively searching inside you can extract more resources and if lucky enough hit a blog, discussion forum, portal, etc which then you can keep mining.

If you prefer, you can select results by clicking the {S} red link at the top-right of the lists. You can then export the results by copy/pasting to an external source (e.g., Excel, txt file, etc..). In this way you can build your own curated collection or organize links to your heart needs.

You can also start the above mining by just searching for [ speaker profiles ] in the seominer, doing a Search Inside in the SES London result, and then doing a Search Inside on a result as done before.

In some tests, we were able to get inside a discussion forum and all replies of a specific post. In another test, we were able to mine zillion of posts of Twitter and Facebook users.

Proceeding as describe above, you will be walking and mining the link structure of sites across the Web. That is you will be mining while searching which, as said at the beginning of this post, is our primary goal: to turn searchers into data miners.
