Mozenda Glossary of Terms

Email Extractor

See also Website Data Extraction, PHP Screen Scrape, Extraction Software

An email extractor is a program that can identify an email, wherever it is on a webpage or in its source code. This program will navigate from page to page extracting and storing emails until it has exhauted all required navigations. Mozenda data-recognition makes this easy, and requires no programming.

Web email address extractors are useful tools for developing contact lists, sales prospecting and other purposes for which access to information is valuable. An email extractor harvests emails from the internet using standardized protocols.

A premium extractor such as Mozenda will navigate through most web pages to find the best sources for gathering emails and then extract them into an organized list useable with most databases and CRM solutions.

Mozenda allows you to reduce time spent on Email Extraction.

Why Mozenda?

Mozenda was started to help users make sense of that unstructured data. We felt that, by allowing users to determine what information they need from a website and how that information should be structured, the data on the Internet would be infinitely more useful to businesses. Our product consists of a desktop application that is used to build web data-extracting agents and a web application that is used to access extracted data. This means that Mozenda makes it easy to create customized feeds of data from nearly any web page and then manage, export, or reuse that data.

The Mozenda Advantage

Unlike other parsing based web scraping software, Mozenda uses browser rendering technology which allows the Mozenda application to look and behave like a web browser, but act like a web scraper. There are multiple benefits to this approach:

  • Mozenda loads pages and navigates pages just like a browser.
  • Mozenda can click and activate any item on a web page and wait for it to load.
  • Mozenda can easily navigate through sub-pages.
  • Mozenda handles AJAX and Javascript without problems.
  • With Mozenda you only have to set up the navigation and capture action once and it will replicate across pages and categories.
