How does it work?

You have probably noticed it, but there is no email address on Google Maps.

As mentioned in this popular Google thread, Google simply won’t give you this information.

How can we extract email from a Google Maps business listing?

We actually do this in 3 simple steps, that you can reproduce manually:

  1. Do a search on Google Maps
  2. Collect the business website
  3. Collect the emails available on the page

Let’s deep dive in.

Do a search on Google Maps

Let’s say you search all the emails of coworking space in Bali, a popular destination for Digital Nomads in Indonesia.

First, the automation goes on Google Maps, and performs the search.

It scrapes the list of business listings matching with the query. And collects all available information from each Google place.

Collect the business website

Then, if a website is mentioned, the email scraper does visit the website.

For instance, the Tropical Nomad Coworking Space.

Well-lit, with pretty plants, it looks cool!

Collect the emails available on the page

There are usually 2 kind of pages with email on it:

  1. Home page
  2. Contact us page The scraper visits each page and scrapes the emails available.

For example, here, the email is directly accessible from the header of the page. We collect it and give it back to you.

On top of email, we collect of course all data points from Google Maps: google place ID, address, phone number. On the website, we also collect additional social media informaion: facebook, instagram.

We have automated all these actions so that you can do it in seconds. No more laborious manual collection. Speed things up.

But is there anything useful to do with these emails?

What can I do with these emails?

No mumbo jumbo. Generate thousands of B2B leads. 10x your lead generation.

According to Google Cloud themselves, Google Maps hosts 200 million businesses online. It is the largest B2B database worldwide, with fresh and updated information.

But is email a good lead generation strategy after all? Absolutely.

According to activecampaign.com, you can target a conversion rate of cold emails of 10-12%.

Grow your business significantly.

Yes, it is absolutely legal to send emails to business addresses collected online.

According to the CNIL, the French Data Protection agency, it is legal to contact businesses with B2B email addresses.

Data protection law in Europe is the same for all countries. If it’s legal in France, consider it legal in Europe. And considering Europe's tough stance on these issues, be sure it's legal worldwide.

However, two conditions must be met. The person you contact must:

  1. Be informed that their email address will be used for prospecting
  2. Be able to opt-out simply and for free

Important remark: generic professional addresses such as contact[@]companyname.com, are contact details of legal entities. They are not subject to the principles mentioned above.

In other words, be sure to let the person opt out for free.

And you’re good.

Which data points will I extract on top of email?

This Google Maps scraping tool will of course help you to scrape emails from Google Maps results. But we're not stopping there.

Overall, we will give you all usual Google Maps business data:

  1. Business name
  2. Address
  3. Phone number
  4. Lat/Lng
  5. Website

And from the business place website, we collect precious contact information:

  1. Email addresses
  2. Social media links — Facebook & Instagram

All contact information in one place.

How much does it cost?

There is nothing like a free lunch.

However, we like to spoil our users: our pricing is extremely generous.

  1. €0 with 150 business listings per day
  2. €50 with 1500 business listings per day
  3. €250 with 15000 business listings per day
  4. €500 with 30000 business listings per day

If you want to compute the exact price depending on your needs, try our live simulator. It is available on the Google Maps Search Export product page.

But a business listing does not always host an email address on its website.

As a whole, how many email addresses can you expect to collect out of 100 businesses?

Out of 100 business listings on Google Maps, how many emails?

Each month, we collect ~5 millions (!) Google Maps business listings worldwide.

  1. 83 phones
  2. 19 emails
  3. 20 facebook links

1 out of 5. Solid.

Once you did retrieve these emails, how can you contact business owners?

QED.

Why is Lobstr tool better than a chrome extension?

If you browse on the Chrome app store, you will see that you can use Chrome extensions to perform the same task.

However, the comments are rather negative, to say the least.

How is Lobstr Google Maps Search Export a better tool than these extensions?

We have identified 3 main reasons.

  1. Easy to use
  2. Free
  3. Scalable

Let’s deep dive in.

Easy to use

If scraping data on Google is legal, it is against Google Terms of Service (ToS). That’s why Google did ban almost all Google Maps extension-based scrapers.

If you check our competitor G Maps Extractor, you will thus have to install the add-on manually.

Absolutely not user-friendly.

🤦‍♂️

Conversely, you can launch our tool in seconds. Without installing any additional piece of software. Fast and free.

Beginners-friendly.

Free

Here again, check our competitor pricing plan.

You have to pay to access email addresses and social media!

Conversely, with lobstr, you can scrape up to 150 google places everyday for free. Email and social media included.

No hidden fees.

Scalable

Chrome extension is cool for quick random use. You install it, you click on a button, and it takes control of your computer. But it does use your own computer resources.

What if you want to scale up, and scrape all email from an entire country?

Leaving your computer on all night, buying a second computer, praying for no power cuts. It's impractical.

The real ones know.

With lobstr, data scraping happens on the cloud. Leave your computer's resources intact.

Wanna speed things up? Use our advanced multi-thread feature and launch up to 20 scrapers at once. Unmatched.

Switch off your computer at night without losing data.
