I have used both BootCat http://bootcat.sslmit.unibo.it/
www.httrack.com for building corpora of websites for textual analysis. They were recommended to me by colleagues in my department.
They can be a bit slow on larger sites but I found them both user friendly and effective. You can also set the search to exclude certain file types i.e. image files if you just want text.
Let me know if you want any further info

Apache Lucene is the best resource for something like this, in my opinion.
Available here: http://lucene.apache.org/
Requires some programming knowledge though.
