    I was looking for a bot to scrape Yell but couldn't find a decent one around and was advised to speak with fatboy, (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/16746-fatboy.html) fatboy has built me a Yell scraper and its great, pulls all of the data and gives me a file that I can import in to excel as a csv file.

    One thing to remember if you are looking to scrape from yell in the UK is that they only return 10 pages for a search so you will have to break down the search area in to smaller chunks if there are more than 150 to 200 listings returned.

    I see a number of posts on here looking for bots and can recommend fatboy's work if anyone needs a bot building.

    There is yell scraper bot out there with a lot of features and look promising. Please take a look of
    It also include free trial. By the way, I'm not affiliated to this website. Just my 2 cents. :)

    I did look at this one but I like to give my business to BHW members and fatboy charges less for his one, its only $20.
