Well, apparently, google is great but it filters out tons and tons of searches to give us the best results but what if we really want to learn something new? May be this will be the answer.

    A lot of it is now on the web—in billions of pages of text. And with search engines, we can very efficiently search for specific terms and phrases in that text.

    But we can’t compute from that. And in effect, we can only answer questions that have been literally asked before. We can look things up, but we can’t figure anything new out.

Where are you trying to put the data? You could set something up with wget to do text files, but it would probably be very messy. You'd have to parse through the html page of the web page to get to your data.
