In short very easy. It has a built in scraper - there is also a scraper/checker add-on you can buy that will scrape and validate and other stuff. However the built in scraper works just fine so you only need upgrade to the add on if you are a power user doing a sh!t-tone of scraping. :)

i have a follow-on question... we are thinking of using Scrapebox but we have a lot of scraping to do and would need a programmatic interface. an API.
we have a few thousand folks / bloggers / journalists , etc... and the sites they mainly write for. but we'd need to drill down to find out if their emails are anywhere on those sites.
so we'd be looking on a series of different URL's for a series of different people's emails... ???

Scrapebox can scrape emails from given urls as well as crawl thru a list of domains looking for mails on any pages. That is with the core of scrapebox and then there is an email scraper plugin which can do even more and has more options.

Scrapebox can run natively on windows or mac. However bear in mind if you buy a mac license its a mac license for life, same with windows, you can't switch between OSs

Scrapebox has no API or "programatic" access, but you can do what you want right in the GUI, if I understand you. I mean scrapebox can handle millions urls. In fact it can functionally handle more urls then your machine resources support. (64bit windows anyways and that assumes you have less then 100GB of Memory aka RAM).

So size of list is no issue, its just functionality and scrapebox can crawl thru domains looking for emails. In fact even if there was an API it would just take you a bunch of work to build something that accesses your data and then does what scrapebox can already do without having to take that work.

I guess I don't understand why do you want to use an api when scrapebox already does what you want in a GUI format?

Or maybe you should/could explain in more precise detail what it is you want and why you think you need an api for it.
 
SB's built in mail scraper is quite good, you can use custom grabbers that you define, and there's a pro email plugin too.

RE: API
Scrapebox has an Automator plugin, which is good, however there's a lot of functions that it doesn't automate (EG Custom Grabber, YPscraper, etc), and it's not really a replacement for an API or full featured CLI interface. You probably don't need an API to do what you mention though.

RE: Size of lists.
Can confirm it handles huge list sizes very very well. I've put lists of 250M+ through it, though in practice you're much better off breaking your lists up and feeding it in chunks.
 
Yeap, Scrapebox can do the job very well indeed. Just that if you have processed a large list (a very large list), you will need a lot of computing power to process that large bulk of data.
For instance, if there's 1million URLS, be sure to have a powerful computer to speed up the processing time, as based on my past experience, it did take a long time to process that.

we're not doing anything too unusual. looking for journalist emails. sometimes they are small journalists and maybe a scraper would be easy since we could just scrape their blog for any emails mentioned and that might be useful to get emails to the owner of the blog.

however, if the journalist is not an owner of the site / URL then their email may or may not be buried somewhere in one of the articles or the author page or a Contact Us page or something.

so we're just targeting specific people / journalists. many of the journalists we are trying to find are just freelancers and aren't the blog-owners. ???

i could easily compile a list of URL's that publish works of the journalists we are looking for but that won't be terribly targeted information.

To your first question, having an API isn't going to help you with this, not that i can see. I mean the only thing I can see an API doing in this case is over complicating things.

As for how to get your end results, I don't have a great solution. You need a human brain to process that sort of data typically. I mean any scraper can scrape, but unless the email has Email - this is the owner. Information with it, then you have no way of really knowing that right?

I mean think of it opposite of probably how you are now. This is how I approach it anyway.

1 - How can I do what I want to do manually.

2 - How can I then automate that.


Most people start with number 2 and skip 1 and then run into a wall. So how do you get the data you want now? figure that out, then look at, can I automate this?

If its repetative and you get the data you want based on X qualifiers, then you can try and automate that.

If its different in every article and every case and sometimes you have to dig around for your authors mails and try and associate things, then its going to be hard to automate because its not consistent. So in that case you may be able to take it part way and aggregate data faster and filter, but may still need a human involved.
 
Hey Loopline,
Could you provide any tips for scraping realtor email addresses? I've been using scrapebox for over a month now, watched your YouTube tutorials and reached out to scrapebox support. Unfortunately, I have not garnered the results I had anticipated. Please don't misunderstand me, I think Scrapebox is an awesome tool, but perhaps I need some 1:1 guidance pertaining to my specific need.

I've tried reaching you, since I'm a subscriber of srapeboxfaq.com, but don't think that is the correct email address for you to reply. Is it possible to PM me or vise versa?

Thanks again for all your support!!

Ill pm you but I think the general answer is you can scrape realitor websites from google based on realitor keywords and then scrape those urls for emails.

If there is a realitor directory, you could build a custom data scraper to scrape that

And if they show up in yellow pages, not sure if realitors do, you could use the yellow pages scraper to scrape realitors and that will give you emails.
