Example of Web Scraping– Automating the Exporting of Data from Lexis Nexis
A few years back Lexis Nexis had access to Jigsaw (a sales list provider). They had built in restrictions which allowed for exporting up to 1,000 contacts at a time.
Using AutoHotKey I was able to automate the exporting of contacts from Lexis Nexis into a great format. All-told I exported over 4 million business contacts including their Name, job title, job function, email address, phone number, company name, company revenue, company NAIC code and SIC codes and much more! It was quite a score and I was in love with Web Scraping from then on!
