Atomic Email Hunter will scan the information on the website and distinguish the data that correspond to the search query. Then, the program will search for email addresses within the selected information. Atomic Email Hunter will open Google and make the following query and extract email addresses.

 

4. Skip Domains

It will be wise to skip a domain if the program finds no email address after exploring through 50 or more pages. Note it works for keyword search only. It only wastes the program resources and your time. In Atomic Email Hunter, such  “rubbish” websites can be skipped. You just need to activate the option from settings. Go to ‘Settings/Common settings/Advanced’ and choose ‘Skip whole domain when no item was found on XXX pages’. Here, you can specify the number of pages to search for email addresses on one domain.

 

5. Replace Symbols

There are many cases in which some people hide their emails, trying to make them invisible for email extractors. Such as:

crawl at yahoo.com 

email_AT_website.com 

Atomic Email hunter has a powerful feature to recognize such emails and extract it for you.All you need to do is; open Atomic Email Hunter, go to ‘Settings/Common settings/Misc’ and see the replacing symbols lists for these two characters.

You can add replacing symbols of your demand by inserting them to the list of replacing symbols and click ‘Ok’ for saving the changes.

 

6. Parse JavaScript

The trick to get all email addresses, even hidden by webmaster, is by opening html source code of browser. By default, the program does not parse JavaScripts, that’s why it will not find and extract such addresses like “me@example.com” and “myCCaddress@example.com” within the code.

To open html source code in your web-browser, do a right click on the page and select “View page source”. By activating the ‘parse JavaScript’ feature, Atomic Email Hunter will get capable of processing JavaScript. Go to ‘Settings/Common settings/Advanced’ and tick the checkbox ‘Parse JavaScript’.

Now, Atomic Email Hunter will extract more email addresses. But be sure you really need it, because the program work-speed will be reduced.
