    I'm new to webscraping and I'm not a developer.

    I have a spreadsheet full of website URLs. Here's what I'm trying to achieve:

    1 - Go to each website and find the "Contact" page. Unfortunately there is no common URL pattern here - for some websites it is /contact.html, for others it is /contact.php, and others it is contact-us.html etc

    2 - Once we've found the contact page, I want to scrap the email and phone number. Some pages have an email submit form instead of an email address, and others do not list their phone number.

    Are there any tools out there that do this?

    I've used Import.io before and I like it, but it seems better suited to scraping lots of data from one website than little bits of data from many websites.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you have!
