This plugin finds mail addresses in google. Two configurable parameters exist:

  • result_limit
  • fast_search

If fast_search is set to False, this plugin searches google for : “”, requests all search results and parses them in order to find new mail addresses. If the fast_search configuration parameter is set to True, only mail addresses that appear on the google result page are parsed and added to the list, the result links are’nt visited.

Plugin type



Name Type Default Value Description Help
result_limit integer 300 Fetch the first “result_limit” results from the Google search No detailed help available
fast_search boolean False Do a fast search, when this feature is enabled, not all mail addresses are found This method is faster, because it only searches for emails in the small page snippet that google shows to the user after performing a common search.
