Hi Michael,

I was just wondering whether you could either alter your current scraper or write a new one that scraped listings from this site?

It should pull from both the hair colourist and hair dresser category

Hi Luke, if you have any research projects in the future I would lie happy to assist. For some reason I enjoy researching on the net!
Cheers Ash
The scraper appears to be working perfectly for now. The website even separates street, suburb and state in the source code. The catch is that whoever entered the data occasionally combined streets with suburbs. And there are duplicates as well. I'll give it a clean manually.

Awesome, lets give it a go then!
OK I just had a look at the and I think it might be doable (although I've never tried this before so I don't know if they'll detect me and ban me or change the system). [As a technical
aside the phone number is stored in a JSON file and I'll need to provide an ID and hash to access each one but I'll try to program it.]
By the way, I just noticed they've improved the Yellow Page search hits pages in the last month such that the website and e-mails appears in the source code. I actually would have been done in less than an hour if I'd known! I should rewrite this program now as well to save a tonne of time and data :)
