When screen scraping on a large scale, there is one thing that you must have, and that is a proxy. Not just one proxy, hundreds of proxies. The number of proxies you need is directly correlated to the amount of pages you are going to screen scrape.
If you’ve worked with proxies at scale, you know how much of a management nightmare they become. Getting rid of banned IP’s, working new IP’s into the rotation, and making sure that the proxies are rotating intelligently. The more proxies you have the more difficult they become to manage.
I built a service called SingularProxy.com that keeps the same flexibility as if you owned the proxies yourself, but removed all of the pain points with proxies. Now you can simply buy proxy credits instead of having to spend time on proxy management.
Private proxies, public proxies, IP rotation, multiple invoices from multiple providers, error troubleshooting, testing, and more are all a thing of the past.
Save yourself some time and money and check out SingularProxy.com.
