Blog Crawler Application

I need a script that will find blogs that do not use the nofollow tag on comment links. I'm not sure of the best way to do this and need proposals. Please submit a detailed proposal with your bid. If you believe that this can be done better with a technology other than PHP, please tell me so. Suggestions: Use the Google/Yahoo API to search for blogs using a specific string. i.e. search for "powered by Wordpress" or whatever. Make a web crawler to find the blogs itself. I have a dedicated server that this script could run on with about 1TB of bandwidth available per month. Make the script customized for each blog platform. i.e. if the script deals with each blog script individually, it could more accurately handle them. Make the script able to find blogs based on category and/or keyword. Make the script index the blogs via RSS feed, so that blog posts may be found by keyword search. Note: The script will not be posting to these blogs. We will not be spamming these blogs. We will be making personal, relevant comments on a limited number of blogs each month. It's just too time consuming to find them ourselves, though. I did a quick screen video explaining some of the info for this project at [url removed, login to view]
