As far as I know the symbol @ is simply ignored by Google.
"*" is a wildcard and means "some words"
So searching for *@ companyname.com is more or less the same as searching for companyname.com ; it may or may not reveal email addresses. Adding "-www.companyname.com" may help but not much.
(There's no way actually to look for the symbol @ to be included in your search. Google would become too slow if they'd allow that.)
What I do when I search for email addresses looks like this (important: quotes included!):
"email ** companyname.com" - that does reveal email addresses in the search pages.
(Use Contact Capture on top of that, and you have a CSV list.)
(Interestingly, I get different results from
"email * companyname.com "
"email ** companyname.com "
"email *** companyname.com " etc. - I would love somebody to explain why to me)
There are slight variations of this way to look for email addresses, such as
"to ** companyname.com "
"at ** companyname.com "
What do others do?
for in a 'good' fit, but that does not mean such information should be part of your marketing efforts. One Connecticut based healthcare staffing firm learned this the hard way yesterday as Onward Healthcare agreed to pay $100,000 in civil penalties in a settlement reached with the U.S. Justice Department. They were accused of placing job ads that limited response to U.S. Citizens only. This is clearly a wrong practice as the Immigration and Nationality Act prevents organizations from discriminating on the basis of citizenship. A good reminder to keep your information focused on the actual opportunity and skills required for the role with less emphasis on the window dressing.
