Extract from WWW pages and Newsgroups
Ability to extract email addresses from web pages based on email address text pattern matching. - Many email addresses on web pages exist as non-hyperlink text. The program can extract all email addresses, hyperlink and non-hyperlink. (Hyperlink meaning the "MAILTO:" type links). The program can also be set up to retrieve only hyperlink email addresses.
Ability to extract from websites utilizing FRAMES.
The program is one of the few extraction programs that have the ability to spider websites using frames (and without the aid of the NOFRAMES tag).
Intelligent Spidering
Visited URL's are cached so that visited web pages will not be visited again. (User has the ability to clear the URL History cache at any time). WWW Spider operations can be set to: all pages, domain only, page only.
Ability to Resume Spiders
With the program, you can stop a WWW spider extraction operation at any time, save the URL's that are in the waiting queue and then resume the same spider later. The "Extraction Depth" setting is retained for the list file and set when the list is loaded. Using this method, a spider operation can go on for an indefinite period of time.
Three methods of WWW Extraction
Perform Keyword Searches utilizing up to nine different search engines, search a specific user defined URL or search utilizing a URL list.
Targeted Searches
Search and extract email addresses from web pages that meet your search criteria. Up to nine search engines are utilized to collect relevant URL's based on your search keywords. The URL's are then spidered to and scanned for email addresses. Email addresses are collected from the Newsgroups you specify, based on your interest or topic resulting in highly qualified email lists.
"Opt-Out" Bypassing
Any email address containing the word "spam" or "remove" will automatically be bypassed from the extraction operation. People that have added these words to their email address do not want to receive unsolicited commercial email no matter how good of a product or deal you have to offer. People who choose to "opt-out" should be respected in their choice to not receive UCE. Your email address lists will be more qualified and save you time in cleaning them up with this feature.
Advanced "Extractor Trap" Protection
An extractor trap is a web page usually (but not always) generated by a cgi script that creates a large number of bogus email addresses and links which link it back to itself. An email harvesting program that connects to such a page will collect the bogus email addresses and links and will "hang up" on the site and get filled up with the bad email addresses. Some users of such web sites do not want a search engine robot to "hang up" on the page so they include a meta tag in the web page specifically used for robot exclusion.
Full Proxy Support
Ability to work through a proxy server. The program supports proxy name addressing as well as proxy IP number addressing.
Ability to set the HTTP_REFERER variable
The HTTP_REFERER is a variable that indicates the URL from which a website visitor came from. Some websites will not allow access unless the referrer was from it's own domain. The HTTP-Referrer can be set to the domain of the current URL or it can be set to any URL the user wishes.
Save Web page TITLE with email address
The title of a web page is what is viewed in the title bar of the web browser for a particular web page. The title is set for most HTML pages. It identifies the web page content in a global context. This feature will allow you to personalize your email to the recipient by including the website title in your email to them.
