URL Extractor is an app to extract and collect emails and urls in an automatic unattended way from local files on your Mac or from the web starting from web pages or search engine keywords.

URL Extractor can be used to extract thousands of email addresses or other URLs, as example web addresses, in various mode:

• Inserting (or importing) a list of web page addresses, the app will use those web pages as a seed to start to collect data and visit linked pages, proceeding in a background navigation to the requested deep level collecting data till the user decide to stop.
• Inserting (or importing) a list of keywords and using them as a starting point to run a search on a user specified search engine. The app will use the obtained pages to proceed in a navigation and data collection to the requested deep level till the user decide
• Specifying a list of files and folders on the local hard disk to extract from and extracting in all the subfolder at any deep level

The user can watch live, during extraction, the extracted URLs filling the table. Filters can be used to decide what accept or exclude.
The extracted URL will be ready to be saved on disk for later use for any purpose.

The app uses various settings that can be modified to find the right balance for any search.

URL Extractor is document based to allow the user to save all the settings relative to an extraction, local based or on web based , inside a document to save on disk for later reuse.
Considering the large and dynamic nature of the web, an extraction with some specific parameters could be infinite and with different results at different time.

Almost perfect

I needed this software for work it’s almost perfect it does what it’s suppose to but there are a few bugs that are a bit anoyying and some missing features that could make this software the best on the market the developer is nice and responds quickly and takes suggestions. If you need a link extractor for the mac look no more this one has the option to extract urls by a keyword I use this feature a lot I just wish it had a exclusion list and the option to search by muliple keywords I really think the developer will provided some nice updates in the near feature. The price is a bit high BUT if the sofware keeps getting updates I say its money well spent. Give it a try I think you won’t regrett it

Developer Response ,

50 bucks down the drain….

Application is very, very buggy. It does not extract URLs from a web page as it states it should. I'm not an idiot either and I'm ery experienced with applications like this one -- but unfortunately, it just doesn't work right.

For example: If you try to extract the URLs from a particular domain, it does not extract internal URLs. And, even though you can set a limit on the number of URs to crawl, the setting seemingly has no effect whatsoever; the application runs non stop.

I thought I would take a chance and try this app, but should have known better. The author has always written another app called "URL EXTRACTOR" -- which also has all negative reviews. I assume his motive to rename the app "URL EXTRACTOR PRO 4" (this app) was to avoid the other apps negative reviews.

In 3 words: NOT WORTH IT.

Please check the latest release. Thank you
