In this article we explore proxy rotation. How does it affect web scraping success and blocking rates and how can we smartly distribute our traffic through a pool of proxies for the best results.
Mobile and Residential proxies are widely considered to be the highest-quality proxies available for web scraping. However, there are some key differences between the two that are important to understand before choosing one over the other.
Mobile proxies are distributed by cell towers and provided by mobile network operators. They are less reliable but very trustworthy as mobile users have the highest trust score when it comes to being a real human.
Residential proxies are distributed to residential users by Internet Service Providers (ISPs). They are more reliable but less trustworthy as they are more likely to be used by automated systems.
So, in summary, choose mobile proxies to avoid being blocked by tough anti-scraping services otherwise choose residential proxies for reliability and generally high trust score as well.
