    contextual advertising engine

    cf_matt
      Hi
      I'm possibly going to attempt writing a contextual advertising tool similar to googles adsense.
      I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how to find out what text is on the page that the users adverts are embedded in.

      I was thinking about cfhttp to find out what html was in the current page but there will be a lot of concurrent requests and it would probably start getting very slow.

      Another method could be to use javascript to parse the text on the page and pass a huge string to a cfm file.

      I think there will probably have to be lots of caching need to be done, e.g only checking the text on the pages once a day.

      Does anyone else have any thoughts, ideas or better ways to achieve this?
