    The other day I saw a thread on how to scrape emails with SB, I'm sure most of you will already know this method, but I have been optimizing the footprints for it, and a little guide :)

    1. Get SB (lol...). Run it.
    2. get some good proxies! lol
    3. in the harvester section put one of the below footprints:

    a. footprint to harvest emails from contact us pages
    Code:
    inurl:"Contact-Us" "hotmail.com" OR "gmail.com" OR "yahoo.com" *keyword here*
    b. facebook page email scraping
    Code:
    site:facebook.com inurl:page "hotmail.com" OR "gmail.com" OR "yahoo.com" *keyword here*
    c.forum email scraping
    Code:
     intext:"powered by phpbb" "hotmail.com" OR "gmail.com" OR "yahoo.com" *keyword here*
    4. you can either put the keyword in the custom footprint box or scrape some keywords and shoot from there. Once you've done that hit "start harvesting"
    5. once you have a billion urls (maybe :D), click grab, and gab emails from scraped list.
    6. export, sort, and SPAM!!!

    Optional: use the "time" option to get the latest emails - I tend to use within one month

    Some of you will already know/do this, but I'm pretty sure this will be helpful to alot of other people!

    THANKS and enjoy! :)

    The problem with this is that ScrapeBox will scrape emails that a normal user can't view (Hidden and used for spamtraps) so be carefull. But amazing method :) I usually just SQLi and steal the database from related sites. But not every one will be ub for doing that as it's ratehr time consuming.

    I tried this something on similar lines and got a shitload of aaa.yyy.com kind of email id's. If there is a way to crack that, your trick can be bloody awesome!

    well, I guess i would write a short piece of code saying something along the lines of:

    IF [any given character] repeats more than [x] times, then delete. :)

    Just is there anyway to scrape for example a footprint " 1213 All rights reserved. bluetest" and get emails from all the sites that have that footprint in there footer using srcapebox?

    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:xls
    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:pdf
    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:pdf attendee
    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:pdf directory
    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:pdf conference
    "*.*@exxonmobil.com" inurl:csv

    Use outwit docs to collect the results, download, run through email extractor.

    I used to get 60k emails a day, all b2b

    ;)

    Also, download all the serp results locally, and run them through emailbusiness' email extractor.

    my method here. (you can use this method without scrapebox)

    footprints to find targeted emails:

    Code:
    site:some-targeted-forum.com "@gmail.com"
    Code:
    site:some-targeted-forum.com "@hotmail.com"
    Code:
    site:some-targeted-forum.com "@whatever.com"
    Code:
    site:somesite.com "@whatever.com"
    use AutoPagerLite firefox plugin to show all google results in one page. then copy all page and paste in a txt file. then use Email Extractor Express software to scrape emails from .txt file.

    Ahh, I had a good one somewhere, scraped a good 100k from a particular website, was very nice... had the word "spider" in it, was very buggy though.

    Does anyone know the law on spamming?
    1) What happens if I get caught by a spam trap?
    2) Could I get fined for spamming scraped emails?
