You could store stuff like website names, and keywords to look for as variables, then just have the user fill in what they want in those variables. I'm assuming that the information is supposed to come from the web right? Making it look through HTML is pretty foolproof, though certainly slower than using an API.

Actually I have never done so extensive programming like HTML Parsing and a search engine. So how should I start?
