PageRaptor is a data mining tool. With it you can browse to online Yellow Pages
and extract the data to Excel files. Of course in different countries there are
different versions of websites that call themselves "Yellow Pages". Currently
PageRaptor covers Yellow Pages in these countries: USA, Italy, Australia,
Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, France, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Canada,
Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, and Ireland. More are being added all the time.
For this review I used the USA, there you can get data from SuperPages (business
& residential), WhitePages (business & residential), YellowBook (business &
people) and YellowPages.
I choose SuperPages, in the search on the homepage of SuperPages that the
internal browser on PageRaptor took me to I put in for keywords Motorcycle
Repair and for city I choose Milwaukee Wisconsin. In a very short time
PageRaptor had extracted all of the pertinent data on the 3 pages of results and
then taken me to a PayPal page where I could pay.
The data PageRaptor extracts is, the name, telephone and fax numbers, address,
and postal code, plus webpage url.
In conclusion, if you need to data mine phone books, jump up and down for joy,
for with PageRaptor you have found an invaluable tool.
