How to Collect Email Addresses using Google for Email Marketing

Having a collection of email addresses is one of the essential part for email marketing. Even though there are many email marketing software as well as email marketing websites that can do the job of gathering email addresses for you, but almost all of such useful tools come with a price. It is smart to search if what you need can be free of cost, or at least cost.

What I am sharing here is a really cool way to search email addresses. This trick will allow you to create a massive list of email addresses for marketing purpose. If you use it smartly, you can even get pre-made list of email addresses having thousands of email addresses.

All you need to do is, go to google and type this search string.

intext:gmail.com filetype:txt

This will get you web results of notepad files of email addresses, specifically .txt files having email addresses ending on @gmail.com domain. You can try other file types and email providers such as;

intext:outlook.com filetype:xlsx

You can try other variants as well, and can gather a great list of email addresses for marketing purpose. As this is a random list of email addresses, it would be your job to use these email addresses wisely so that you do not spam others.
