I am trying to scrape a FAO webpage including multiple links from any of which I would like to collect the "News" part.
Yet, I have done this:
fao_base = 'http://www.fao.org'
fao_second_level = paste0(stem, '/countryprofiles/en/')
all_children = read_html(fao_second_level) %>%
html_nodes(xpath = '//a[contains(@href, "?iso3=")]/@href') %>%
html_text %>% paste0(fao_base, .)
Any suggestion on how to go on? I guess with a loop but I didn't have any success, yet.
