    Best experience

    Developers like me find forums to be the biggest source of our knowledge and insights, but we rarely have time to go through all of that massive data. Stackoverflow and Reddit have so much strictness & security that we thought it was un-scrapable. Until Proxycrawl :) Now I can fetch whatever I need to learn more about in a matter of a few minutes. Awesome Tools!

    👍 Pros:    No ip leaks, no captcha, no failed requests!!!

    BEST REVIEW

    I get so many data mining projects that it becomes a hassle to manage my proxies and handle their limitations. It is now so convenient to bypass blocks and scrape big platforms swiftly with Proxycrawl. The best part... I get all my solutions on one platform!

    🏁 Competitors: Apify
    👍 Pros:    The freeware presents nameless net proxy servers for your net scraping and your extracted statistics will be hosted on proxycrawl’s servers two weeks earlier than the facts are archived, or you can without delay export the extracted records to json or csv files.
    👎 Cons:    A bit confusing pricing and payment methods.

    Excellence in all matters

    I love their support, and the service. The Crawling API and Crawler are very reliable, I use this service to scrape millions of pages from various websites like Zillow, Amazon, Yelp, Ebay, SimilarWeb. I've searched over 4 months to find a service to scrape Linkedin, I only found it with proxycrawl, I could not believe they can do it until I tried. Super awesome service and worth every cent, the service reduces my time on crawling and scraping the web to basically zero minute.

  • Beginner web scraping
    Butt hey don't do that even by coding a scraper from scratch. The reason for that is the scale of data needed. Manually doing all that would need huge infrastructure and the amount of time needed to code all that. There are scraping tools for that like ProxyCrawl that allows you to focus on what part of the website you want and also save costs. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • I’m a beginner, can i learn web scraping or should I focus on other simpler things
    That's fine. If you can read some JSON, make some requests, and are good enough with Python(which you can see at Pluralsight), you'd be good to go. You don't need to be an expert though. If you would like to build large-scale scrapers, then I would highly recommend you a Scraping API like ProxyCrawl. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

  • Crawler / data provider for latest content from popular social/content sites
