Business Directory Extractor is an advanced utility that gives you the possibility to locate and extract contact details from YellowPages.com and SuperPages.com, such as email and physical address, city, zipcode, or latitude and longitude. It can also extract this data from local files.
Installing this tool doesn't take long and requires little intervention, since there are no special options or third-party offers involved.
However, you must have .NET Framework installed, since it was developed with the aid of this platform. It's wrapped in a simple-looking interface that doesn't put emphasis on graphical elements and contains many options.
You can search the Yellow Pages by one or more keywords to view results with the title, email and physical address, city, state, zipcode, latitude and longitude, business details, phone and fax numbers, category, and web links. Any of these fields can be disabled from the settings panel.
Plus, you can check out statistics with the total records and URLs found, along with the scan duration. Business Directory Extractor saves extracted info to a CSV file in a predefined location and enables you to change this directory.
Furthermore, you can extract contact information from a local CSV file, toggle the source between YellowPages.com and SuperPages.com, apply a proxy configuration for connecting to the Internet, set the random delay per request, and activate debugging mode.
It didn't put a strain on PC performance in our tests, using low CPU and RAM. Although it didn't hang, crash or show errors, it failed in several attempts to return any search results. On top of that, the interface needs some visual improvements. We must also keep in mind that Business Directory Extractor hasn't received updates for some time.
