    Hi guys, I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to suggest which techniques, software, or service provider I could use to accomplish my contact info harvesting goals.

    I am looking to acquire distributor names and phone numbers (and possibly emails) from many MLM companies. Most MLM companies use replicated websites, and each member has his/her own site with their username in the URL, which has the individual's contact information. As an example, the root site for the company ACN is acnrep.com, and the replicated site for this one particular member is: edijak.acnrep.com

    This company has over 1 million members, each with their own website like this. However, there is no list or database of these distributors, and the search engines give up very little. For example:

    I can do a Bing search for site:acnrep.com "ACN Independent Representative"
    which shows over 2.3 million results, but only reveals 1000 of them. I need access to all those URLS. (By the way, how did the search engines get ALL of them in the first place?)

    Please let me know if you know how to comb/scrape/find the data I need. Bare minimum, I'd like the URL of each member, and can manually find the contact into in each, but would prefer the contact info scraped for me if possible.
