Hey buddy, do you scrape using the “Scrape Tools” or the “Contact” tab or just the normal “Follow” tool and sending to extract users?
Use the follow tool and send to extracted user so you get a steady flow of follow sources and so you don’t have to manually scrape them every time you run out of people to follow
The main purpose is to reduce API calls that are not needed. There are many factors at play, but having a separate account removes a lot of the risk and isn’t that much more expensive.
I am using that and for some reasons the accounts are not actually scraping at all. I had to use the Contact tool but it is equally slow.
Have you tried using the scrape tool? I see people say that they can scrape up to millions in a day but I am not sure if the tool can get you targeted users.
How do you setup:
- Account “1” to do scrape + follow
- Account “2 - X” to follow (no scraping) based on scraped results from Account “1”
I have a question regarding this matter. I know no one can answere for sorten. But wouldn’t the IG algo look at how many requests has been from a specific ip and device and not only on profile level?
This means you gotta use separate proxy or IP and separate device ID to do scarping and if not, you still risk block?
Right, that would be the way to go. I believe the whole point is to reduce the risk to your main. In another related topic, I think a lot of people would be interested in a full tutorial for adding a scraping account and using it on your Main from beginning to end, what do you guys think?
I’ve scraped over 2M accounts with additional business details using 9 scrapers and none of them have ever been blocked. This was using the Scraper Tools panel. None of them have ever done anything except:
- Scrape users through the API, and;
- repost a couple of photos.
I’ve had them running for weeks on end at times without any problems whatsoever. Try checking ‘save file on disc’ and ‘continue scraping users after restart’. Also make the ‘extract max’ equal to or less than the total number of followers/followings/posts of the source you want to scrape for optimum efficiency.
I don’t get why Jarvee not just use scrappers account in a transparent mode.
I mean once an real user scrapp it uses the “scrapper account” for entering the user page for example.
This is what i do with my bot, almost every 3’rd user page I enter I use the scrapper to check first.
BTW, a good method is to take real account A that already scraped 20000 users and to remove real account B follow history then add it to B in specific users.
how do you “follow based on scraped results from account #1”?
You need to check the option to “Send to extracted users tab” And then under the extracted users tab you can choose where those extracted users go.
Thanks a lot for your reply!
I got that. But how do I set up the main profile (the one receiving the scraped users)?
A fast question and info about scrape account.
I have open two accounts conected directly from my IP. They are feeding several acocunts each from same niche. No problems til now, they work smoothly and fast, I even stop them temporaly when account have enough sources to follow for several days. is it necesary to make them work from a proxy when they are not doing more activity than scraping?
I need to create more scrape accounts and I wonder if I should use proxies as mother accounts do.
Thanks for your feedback
About scraping people who comment posts of targeted accounts, what is your insights?
I just scrap like 8 account, 5k to 100k+ followers for one night. Now the tool told me that there is no more users to extract.
But when I check the number of scrapped users, it’s around only 3000 users which seems to me very very low.
Like only 3 000 users have commented all these accounts??
(I have put 0 min in "comment in the last…)
Hi Mate - Could you please share what your settings are on the follow tool that is setup just for scraping and sending to extracted users? I currently only seem to be able to get about 40 accounts info per hour out of it - even though I have it set for 150 accounts per hour.
I have a few filters selected on the follow tool. Just the follwers cap and the posted in last X days options.
I’m using just my home IP for the proxy.
