What is the best way to automate the collection of specific data, ie contact information, when visiting a webpage? Years ago I used to methodically copy or enter the person/company’s name, address, web url telephone number and email and notes into a contact manager or address book. More recently, I have simply saved a copy of their contact page. I can link to the saved page, tag it, and or search for it. This works,- but it is a little chaotic.
It occurred to me that maybe it would be possible for Clipboard Help + Spell to identify different types of text strings and sort them neatly into their categories based on the attributes of the text. A ".com", ".org" etc would indicate that text strig is part of a web url. An "@" sign would indicate an email address or an Instagram etc.
It would be great to be able to pull
Instagram (more and more businesses are on instagram)
It seems like an easier way to identify what text is what would be using the page coding.
I have looked into some Customer Relationship Managers CRMs to see if they offer a way to pull contact information into their systems and I have not found anything yet. I have also looked into web scraping tools, but most seem to target an entire site. I would like to indicate a page and pull the information I want.
