Web Scraping Guru 

Over 6 years experience writing almost exclusively web scraping code. I've done it all. My languages in order of experience and use is Python, JavaScript, PHP. Python libraries ( selenium, Lxml, BeautifulSoup ). Also PhantomJS ( usually with selenium ). I am also experienced integrating data with MySQL databases, and setting up Linux servers for big scraping jobs / systems. I currently have over 130 million business listings from Google's Places Database. You can parse through the data at www dot businessemaillist dot co ".co" not ".com". Click "search by location" to use the data parsing tool which allows you to view the total entry count after filtering by location and category. Contact me through freelancer if you are interested in purchasing this places data. The data is updated regularly and is always fresh.

Our company took advantage of loopholes in Google\'s Search algorithm. I was in charge of deciding what assumptions to make and risks to takes in hopes of finding algorithmic loopholes that could be taken advantage of. This went very very well for a couple of years, but soon before panda and penguin google closed the loopholes we were using and I ultimately decided being that I have learned so much about web scraping that I am going to focus my business on that.
