    I need to scrape e-mail addresses of amazon reviewers.

    I have the latest scrapebox. I'm trying to use "Grab emails by crawling a site" and even if I point it to the exact page of a reviewer it doesn't grab an email (probably because it needs additional click on javascript link).

    Can someone help me or point me in the right direction?

    Thanks.

    Can you give me an example page?

    Basically Scrapebox sees pages with javascript turned off. So turn off javascript in your browser and load the page, can you see the email address in the code? If so Scrapebox can see it, if not then Scrapebox can't see it and you have to figure out how to load a page that has the email in the code with javascript turned off.

    The short answer is that sometimes you can do it and sometimes an email simply will not display without javascript so you can't scrape it. Just depends on the site. If I were a betting man Id bet amazon has it setup so you can't see the mail without javascript, but you should at least try it.

    here is a video on that very concept that should be helpful:
