Contact Details Scraper

How do I extract contact information from a website?

Our Contact Details Scraper can crawl any website and extract the following contact information for individuals listed on the website:

Why scrape contact information?

Scraping contact details can give you a fast way to get lead-generation data for your marketing and sales teams. Collecting contact details can help you populate and maintain an up-to-date database of leads and prospective customers. Instead of manually visiting web pages and copy-pasting names and numbers, you can extract the data and rapidly sort it in spreadsheets or feed it directly into your existing workflow.

Check out our industry pages for use cases and more ideas on how you can take advantage of web scraping.

How do I use Contact Details Scraper?

Follow our simple step-by-step guide to learn how to use Contact Details Scraper.

How much does Contact Details Scraper cost?

Apify provides you with $5 free usage credits every month on the Apify Free plan, and you can get up to 10,000 results from Contact Details Scraper for those credits. So 10,000 results will be completely free!

But if you need to get more data or to get your data regularly, you should grab an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Personal plan - you can get up to 100,000 results every month with the $49 monthly plan. Or 1 million results with the $499 Team plan!

You should be aware that your results might contain personal data. Personal data is protected by GDPR in the European Union and by other regulations around the world. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. You can also read our blog post on the legality of web scraping.

Input options

The actor offers several input options to let you specify which pages will be crawled:

  • Start URLs - Lets you add a list of URLs of web pages where the scraper should start. You can enter multiple URLs, upload a text file with URLs, or even use a Google Sheets document.
  • Maximum link depth - Specifies how deep the actor will scrape links from the web pages specified in the Start URLs. If zero, the actor ignores the links and only crawls the Start URLs.
  • Stay within domain - If enabled, the actor will only follow links on the same domain as the referring page. For example, if the setting is enabled and the actor finds a link on http://www.example.com/some-page to http://www.another-domain.com/, it will not crawl the second page because www.example.com is not the same as www.another-domain.com

The actor also accepts additional input options that let you specify proxy servers, limit the number of pages, etc.

Results

The actor stores its results in the default dataset associated with the actor run. You can then download the results in formats such as JSON, HTML, CSV, XML, or Excel. For each page crawled, the following contact information is extracted (examples shown):

  • Emails

    alice@example.com
    bob.newman@example.com
    carl+test@example.co.uk
    
  • Phone numbers - These are extracted from phone links in HTML (e.g. <a href='tel://123456789'>phone</a>).

    123456789
    +123456789
    00123456789
    
  • Uncertain phone numbers - These are extracted from the plain text of the web page using a number of regular expressions. Note that this approach can generate false positives.

    +123.456.7890
    123456789
    123-456-789
    
  • LinkedIn profiles

    https://www.linkedin.com/in/alan-turing
    en.linkedin.com/in/alan-turing
    linkedin.com/in/alan-turing
    
  • Twitter profiles

    https://www.twitter.com/apify
    twitter.com/apify
    

The results also contain information about the URL of the web page, domain, referring URL (if the page was linked from another page), and depth (how many links away from Start URLs the page was found).
