    Is it possible to pay an expert here to harvest/scrape the email addresses from a large forum in my particular niche?

    The forum/s I have in mind each have in excess of 50,000 members and I'm wondering if it is possible to harvest at least 10,000 addresses from the members list?

    If it is possible, how much would that cost?

    I am keen to learn, so if you think it would be better for me to simply dole out the cash for Scrapebox and get learning I will consider that an option.

    Failing that, if anyone here can do it with quick turnaround, let me know.

    Thanks.

    if the members have put their email address in public, and if 10k of them have, it can't be hard to extract their lists. you don't need an expert, you can do it yourself with a scraper and some proxies

    I believe most of the forums will not disclose email id in public, hence it might not be possible unless members have written their email in posts.

    Ah right, I did wonder if that was the case.

    I've been using the old google "site:url" search thing and have had some good luck this morning using "csv xls site:url" which turned up ten or so csv files from one site (containing several thousand niche emails in total) and grabbed them all using Internet Download Manager, but now I'm running out of leads.

    I think I might have to grab Scrapebox and learn to play around with footprints?

    Cheers anyway guys.

    If you have a forum which allows to see the members email on their profile, I could scrape it for you. But most likely they are not public
