Here’s a quick little ditty on finding domain names for emails when you may be having problems finding the extensions. Obviously you are going to run through your standard approaches but feel free to add this to your search:

You can utilize the site search (x-ray) in this instance:

site: companyname.com

But rather than x-raying for names or keywords lets focus on emails and possible extensions to the email. For example if we ran the site search but added:

(email OR mailto)

This would start to pick up email verbiage. So, given the fact that we know a little HTML and the syntax to link an email is: mailto: we added this in to try and narrow our results to email addresses. In most cases this is going to give you the info you need to get the correct email syntax. If not, just play around with the company name and keywords like email and com. Utilizing the * operator will also change your results. If you are using the * operator add two instead of one.

For example:

companyname “email **com” or even three: companyname “email ***com

email_icon

Tip: try misspelling the company as well. Sometimes editors goof, but the * should pick that up anyway.
