If you need to review and/or extract a lot content and data on other websites, you run the risk of being identified and possibly blocked by your target websites.
Every time you or your automated software visits the site, your IP address shows up in their logs. This could give you two challenges:
- They could eventually trace all the queries back to you
- Even if your immediate identity cannot be confirmed (although it could be guessed) your IP address is likely to get blocked so you can't visit that site anymore
Some people get a short-term fix by hiding their IP address by using a Proxy Server.
This is effective at hiding your identity, but not at blocking prevention. The target website owners may not be able to work out any more who you are, but they can just block the IP address of the Proxy Server, and you're back to square one!
The Trusted Proxies Proxy Server Cloud provides you a with a Data Extraction solution. It lets your automated software to rapidly and anonymously send your queries from hundreds and thousands of different computers.
The website owners then won't see a huge number of queries coming from the same IP address which makes it impossible for them to detect any patterns or ban you from gathering the business intelligence you need.
Nobody even knows you've been there!
