I am looking for links (not urls of pages) written in job postings on a particular website. I would like to scan the website and copy all strings beginning with http or www on ALL the pages (about 1000)

I am on windows 7. i dont know how to run scripts. Can anybody suggest a efficient way of doing this?

Would i have to first download all html pages? If so, then what software should i use for downloading and scanning and copying for the string?

You need to provvide an example url of a page. For example, they could be, where n is the page number. Another possibility is, again where n is the page number. It could also be that there's a central list of all pages, but the individual page URLs don't have numbers. In that case, a script could grab all URLs to test from the main page, or you may have to manually cpoy every URL in. This kind of information is necessary. – Bob Mar 17 '12 at 11:24
the site is:; now i need to copy all links mentioned in posts on all the pages. – M Singh Mar 17 '12 at 12:10

When we keep in mind that running scripts is not an option for you, you could take the approach to download the source code of a page (right click -> download source code). You then can open it with e.g. notepad and search the content by pressing [Ctrl] + [F].

Another way would be using the URLStringGrabber:

thx for the reply valentin, but i have to scan the whole website and it contains about 1000 pages. so the source code option is out. now the urlstringgrabber also scans only the opened page. opening 1000 pages one by one will take a loooong time. any other options? – M Singh Mar 17 '12 at 10:17
I'd search the web for a decent tool. Use the search term "scan a website for links" in google if you like, this should bring you the desired results. – Valentin Mar 17 '12 at 10:31
Create website map and parse output xml file – infografik Mar 19 '12 at 15:45

You can easly achieve that in Opera, just open left pane - Links, and you can copy all of them to clipboard

hi pinger, is that for the page that is currently open? I need to scan the whole website with about 1000 pages. – M Singh Mar 17 '12 at 10:18
