Why Rotating Proxies Are The Best Way To Overcome IP Blocks?

If you ever been involved in a web scraping project of any size, you would know about the inevitable problem or running into IP blocks.

It is especially true if you are trying to scrape any of the big networks like Amazon, Yelp, Twitter, Craigslist, Instagram, Facebook, etc.

Programmers who are new to web scraping are many times so focussed on getting the scraping XPath selectors or Regex right, and it is so much fun that they have mostly ill-prepared for what's to come next.

None of the IP blocks problems exist at a low scale, so the programmer takes up all the time on getting other things ready. Whereas in our experience of doing hundreds (now thousands after launching Scraper API) of web scraping projects of all sizes, one of the top problems to solve is the inevitable IP blocks.

Some programmers initially have some success with a couple of free proxies they found on the internet. Then they discover the beauty of User-Agent-Spoofing, where they pretend to be a different web browser each time and get past the first hurdle. Then the inevitable happens—a complete IP block of all their IPs.

Investing in a private rotating proxy service like Proxies API can most of the time make the difference between a successful and headache-free web scraping project, which gets the job done consistently.

Plus, with the 1000 free API calls running an offer, you have almost nothing to lose by using our rotating proxy and comparing notes. It only takes one line of integration to its hardly disruptive.
