Common questions about the Author Finder

What is the difference with the Email Finder?

The Author Finder is similar to the Email Finder, the difference is it only requires an article URL. The Author Finder first identifies the author of an article and then finds their email address.,

What is the accuracy of the email addresses?

The Author Finder uses the most complete database of public email addresses to find the right contact information.

All the email addresses go through an email verification before being returned. All the email addresses with a green shield have been verified and found deliverable. You can use them safely.

If the email addresses that couldn't be validated, a confidence score taking into account various data points indicates how sure the email address is.

Are the email addresses guesses or found somewhere?

After the author is found, both cases can happen.

  • First, the Author Finder will search for a match with the author in our large database of email addresses appearing publicly on the web.
  • If there is no possible match, the Author Finder will use other various data points to deduce the most likely email address on the domain name of the article.

In both cases, the email addresses go through an email verification to validate the accuracy.

Is the Author Finder free to use?

One search that provides a result costs one request. If the Author Finder fails to return a result, it is free.

With a free account, you can use up to 25 searches/month. If you need more, please check the pricing for more information.

Can I find the email addresses from a list of article URLs?

Yes! You can use the Bulk Author Finder to upload a CSV file and enrich it with email addresses.

What to do when the Author Finder doesn't return any result?

If the Author Finder can't find the email address, we recommend verifying the following elements:

  • Is the URL of the article correct, and is the author's name present on the page?
  • Do the author(s) on the website have an email address using the same domain name? In some cases, the domain name used for emails is different from the domain name used for the website.
  • Is the person you want to contact still in the company or organization?

If the Author Finder still can't find any result after verifying these elements, a manual search is likely needed.
