    Pulling List with Business Name, Phone Number and URL

    Hi,

    I've been trying to find a list of local businesses with business name, phone number and web site for a local area.

    On City of Santa Monica, I can find some of the information. I click a category, say accounting, and get results with the following columns:

    Business License #, DBA, ...Category

    I do not get phone numbers and web site, if there are any.

    So, I've been highlighting a selection of each entry, right clicking, and selecting 'search google for ...' for each one.

    Is there a faster way?

    Can I create a list or table to include the phone number and web site for each entry?

    If so, can I do it so it would include multiple categories?

    If they have an API, you can use it to get the data you want.
    If they don't, you might be able to scrape it to get the data you want. Get permission first, though...it's good practice.

    Thanks. I don't think they have an API. I am trying some other ways though.

    Try the Chamber of Commerce. For their legal information try the courthouse.
