What is a Web Scraping Proxy?
A proxy server is a computer that provides a connection between your computer and the Internet. A web scraping proxy can help you access websites that are blocked in your region or country, as well as get around website blocks.
Web scraping proxies can be useful for people who need to access websites that are blocked in their region or country, as well as those who want to get around website blocks imposed by large companies such as Google and Facebook. In March 2008, the Israeli Ministry of Education wrote that proxy software is being used to bypass local educational websites. In 2010, the Iranian government started attempting to block proxies in an attempt to clamp down on web freedom in the country. Blocking proxy access has proven ineffective against people using VPNs and Tor networks
