    Hello,

    I have been collecting hundreds of thousands of emails from a web crawler, basically just a multithreaded python link follower that extracts emails with a regex.

    I have also been collecting Facebook emails with a python program as well

    The website i am advertising is sigmatrader


    With Facebook the url structure is as follows. profile php?id=4

    You can iteraete over the ID's and then extract the username from the title in this case the username is "Zuck"

    I next construct the facebook emails "Zuck"+"at"+"facebok "

    I have over 100,000 facebook emails that I have mailed to, and the emails I have scraped from the crawler are not giving much success!

    I have sent over 100,000 emails and I am not having much luck getting them to covert to page impressions?

    How do I make my web crawlers and facebook crawlers more effective?

    Best,
    :cool:

    Your method is super untargeted, so it's no surprise that you're not getting any conversions. I wonder if you could improve the script to get emails for people that are members of specific FB Groups.

    I think that if I send out 100k emails at least one person should click the link. Especially facebook emails where it shows a little notification.

    I could target members of groups if the groups are public, but in most cases I would need the people to subscribe to an app so I can pull all of their info from open graph API.

    You know that facebook doesn't shows any notifications if the mail is not coming from your friend, right?

    that is unfortunate, This would be profitable if there were notifications.
    Do you think that if I just ramp up the volume of emails sent it will get a small percentage of them to convert?
    just send 1m per day instead of 100k? I don't know where to look for targeted email lists.

    Anyone in the email marketing business where do you usually go for email lists that are targeted to your market?

    best,
