To control the traffic flow, Lowe’s may be restricting the number of requests that can be made within a specific time period. It’s a standard security measure websites use to protect themselves from DDoS attacks.
IP bans and CAPTCHAs
If Lowe’s detects possible bot activity, the website may send you a CAPTCHA response to confirm you’re human. After too many failed CAPTCHA requests, the website may even ban your IP address.
Lowe’s may be unavailable in the location you physically reside in. Websites use geo-blocking for various reasons, e.g., license and distribution agreements.
No header control
Typically, headers hold a lot of information about the requestor and the website can see it. Without proper header control, Lowe’s can perceive web scrapers as malicious bots and ban them.
Overloading the website
Websites handle a limited number of incoming requests. If you surpass the number, Lowe’s may suspect you’re not human and prevent access.
Proxies are one of the most commonly used tools in the web scraping space. Proxies mask your IP address and work as a bridge between you and Lowe’s. This way, you can retrieve the data that may be inaccessible in your location. You may also rotate your proxies, further preventing the risk of Lowe’s banning you for too many requests coming from one IP.
To ensure Lowe’s sees you as an organic user, you can customize your headers before proceeding with any web scraping activities. With every request containing a header, you should also switch between them every now and then.
Another tip for imitating organic user behavior is setting the right fingerprint, which involves configuring and choosing the right values for such parameters as headers. As a result, you’re further reducing the risk of getting blocked while gathering public Lowe’s data.
