Upload File of Cities to scrape (Business License only)
If you have certains cities you want to scrape, then you can create a text file with one city per line and upload the file. Lead Scrape will scrape all cities one by one and return one file with all results. Note that you need to use the format -> one city per line, and you will not have to add the country in the file uploaded, the country is pulled from the drop down menu in the all. Below is an example of a correct file format.
In the image above you are telling the software we want to scrape the following five cities (New York City, Miami, San Diego, Chicago)
Ex. In the keyword we use "Plumber", then we upload a text file like the above one, the we select "United States" as the country from the drop down menu.
Lead scrape will scrape all plumbers in those five cities and return one big file with all the results at the end.
Always remember to put the two letter State code after the city (Ex. San Diego CA) for US cities, do not use the State for other countries.
The city list upload is not available in the Standard License, only in the Business license.
Only text format is supported, one city per each line.
Scrape an entire State (Business License only)
With the Business license you can scrape an entire State or County at a time, simply use your search keyword and the State or county, Lead Scrape will do the rest.
Ex. Say that you want to scrape all restaurants in California, put Restaurants as the keyword and California as the location (in the dropdown it will show California [State]). Same applies for any other keyword/State.
Upload File of Categories to scrape (Business License only)
If you have certains categories (business types) you want to scrape, then you can create a text file with one category per line and upload the file. Lead Scrape will scrape all categories one by one and return one file with all results. Note that you need to use the format -> one category per line. Below is an example of a correct file format. Please note you can only select a city as the location when multiple categories are selected.
You can now integrate different popular apps to further improve the final results. For the full list and details, Click Here.
