For this application I wouldn't even consider C.

Perl is growing up for this app.  This is a web based app.  If
you run modPerl, then your perl will be resident and the cgi will
not need to launch another process/etc.  PHP is also a good choice
for this application.... even JSP would probably be good.

While C is fast... each link the bot hits is going to cause the
web browser to launch the application for each link traversed... since
the design is links to self along with garbage addresse to pollute
their lists, a language that is resident with your web server is best
(IMHO of course).
