"If you can get along with everyone and everyone loves you, then you don't stand for much. A person who stands his ground for his principles and won't compromise his integrity is not loved by everyone."

Maverick Keyword Researcher Preview 4: Alibaba Keywords

I just completed the Alibaba module of the Maverick Keyword Researcher that imports keywords from Alibaba’s top lists - Alibaba’s Latest Sourcing Trends and Alibaba’s Trade Trends.

I combined the “Categories with most new buyers”, “Categories with fewer competitors” and “Categories with most products” into 1 page. This saves me space because the menu in the application has limited space. Then you have the “Most searched products”, “Most inquired products” and “Trade Trends” on their individual pages.

Grabbing data from Alibaba proved tricky at first because their web site actually blocks non-browser requests. However, with a little bit of PHP cURL trickery, they were fooled into believing my PHP application was a Mozilla Firefox browser.

I fixed some bugs while doing all this and I have learnt a lot about PHP and cURL.
