Well, we can only offer very general guidelines at this stage. What you can do is write a script that: - call all the URLs showing paintball prices (btw what is a paintball?) - extract the product name and price. this will require a specific REGEX for each URL called, and regular testing vs change of page design. the only difficult part is just this: writing and testing custom REGEXes.
In fact, why not actually create a DB and run the script every night (or more often) as a scheduled task to update the DB?
