Spiders and Robots

By BaltimoreBarry ·
My client wants to use spider(s) to capture email addresses of visitors to his website(s) (he has multiple sites) Some are adult, some are casino, some are catalog. What is the most efficient spider for this purpose? He insists that only permission based customers will be included.

not sure how...

by John Wilker In reply to Spiders and Robots

A spider won't be able to get emails unless they are someplace accessable. Will the users be inserting them somewhere? If so then they are already captured. Email addresses aren't stored as a CGI variable or anything.

Did I misunderstand?
