    I just ordered scrapebox, its not activated yet, so I'm not sure if there is a plug in for that. It would be sweet if it scraped business leads!!

    The way to do this would be to write a short Python program (or use whatever language you are comfortable using). You can incorporate ScrapeBox by using it to get a huge list of URLs. Once you have the list of relevant URLs that you want to 'scrape' emails/phone numbers from...you can run your python program on that list.

    The code would do 3 things:
    [1] Fetch the URL and download the source code
    [2] Analyze the source code's text using Regular Expressions
    [3] Export the result of your user-defined regex function to a text file.

    The program would go through each source file individually, exporting the results each time.
    There you go, now you have a giant list of emails and phone numbers!

    There is a demo version of GSA floating around. You can do a work around on not being able to save the addresses by taking a screenshot and importing to notepad.
