Website Metadata Scraper API by Reviewshake lets you scrape the social and other contact details from a website using its URL. You can make the API call from your browser or from command line to get the data in JSON format. In one request, it gives you social data which includes Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram profile links. In addition to this, you get contact data which includes phone number and email address. You can easily make an API call and quickly get metadata from any website.
