Project Description

I want a script to scrap data from [url removed, login to view] It is a yellowpage of local businesses. The script will allow me to enter a starting URL such as "
[url removed, login to view]+Salons/S-AL/ ". The URL is an example. It usually in the same format "[url removed, login to view]".
The script will go to the city links under the STATE, scrap business contact information listed for that category. If you go to a city link, it will have a list of businesses. I want to get the Business Name, Address, Phone, Fax, Website, Email. Please note that the fax or Email are not listed on the site, but you can scrap the information somehow. I do not know how, but I know someone has done it before. Please test and make sure you can get the email address. I think about 30% of the businesses have an email address. I must be able to get that. If you can not find FAX, that's fine. If you can, please collect the FAX.

I should be able to save the scraped data into .cvs or excel.

First make sure you can get the email address, if you can't, I can not accept your bid.

You are not asked to to do the scraping job. You are asked to develop the script so that I can use to scrap the data. I can enter different URL each time, the format are about the same. From that url, it lead to a city list and a list of businesses under each city.
