I am in need of some data scraping of business contact information in the area of Cosmetic surgeons/practices as well as health and beauty spas/treatment facilities/salons. Our geographic scope is the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
We would assume the scraper would find these businesses listed within yellow and white pages directories, as well as professional associations websites etc. We have no preference in terms of the source. what we do want for each business listing is:
City or Town
County or State
Telephone number (including area code)
It may be necessary to check multiple sources or spider through from the source directory sites to the individual businesses' websites to access email addresses. It may also be necessary to scrape some of the possible source sites through a variety of proxies in order to get around data limits imposed by some of these directory sites.
The total data set across all four countries is estimated to include at least:
11,000 cosmetic/plastic surgeries
150,000 beauty salons
