    Hi mattyk50,

    This type of site is most probably run from a database that feeds the data into the site that the world sees. At some point, someone must enter the data into the database but after that, it is probably automated using scripts.

    No Patrick. Posting affiliate sites that are not owned by the poster is STRICTLY again ABW policy. See the type in *red* when you go to make a post?

    Do NOT Post Affiliate URLs or links - it is a violation of our policies!

    My post was sent wrong... I meant to say WITHOUT. I know and understand the rules. I did not check my wording before I hit submit.

    I think I pointed out that it is against the rules quite clearly that you are not allowed to post a link to an affiliate site that is not your own. Greg did the correct thing editing your post.

    matty,

    Just explain what type of site it is. You don't have to reveal the specifics.

    It could be based on datafeed information, but it could also be manually updated or spidered. You might want to look into a few of the merchants and see if they can provide similar information to you.
