Reddit is not the strictest social media site out there. They let people create several accounts as long as they don’t break the content policy, which prohibits spamming, vote manipulation, ban evasion, and more.
That is fine for the average user who might want to create a throw-away account now and then, but if you’re reading this, you probably have bigger goals.
Except for individuals living in blocked regions like China or Indonesia, the usage of proxies for Reddit is usually practiced by those running automation software or scraping data at a large scale.
To protect against such activity, Reddit has implemented measures against non-permitted botting and scraping activity, such as reCAPTCHA verifications and IP tracking.
This has increased demand for private residential proxies, as datacenter proxies no longer provide sufficient protection.
That’s where we step in. Customers trust our proxies to safeguard their autopilots, freeing up time for them to do other things.
No matter if you are automating two or 1000 Reddit accounts, it is essential to use proxies to ensure your botting operation keeps on trucking undisturbed.
Automation includes everything from account creation, sending DM’s, voting on posts, publishing your posts, etc.
Pushing posts through voting manipulation to the front page is a primary goal for many. Done right, it can result in a viral success that exposes your message to a broad audience in a cheaper and more organic way than traditional marketing.
You can even boost your subreddit to the point where natural users start flooding in, which keeps the sub-community alive and prosperous.
And why not get rid of the competition? Downvote posts that compete with what you’re trying to push and claim the market share for yourself. Hey – they’d do the same to you if they could.
Performing too many actions quickly from the same IP address is one of the most obvious signs that a robot is pulling the levers.
Reddit requires data scrapers to be connected with OAuth2. Scraping Reddit the “correct” way has several limitations, as you must follow their API Rules.
One such limitation is that you’re not allowed to make more than 60 requests per minute – in a world where time equals money, this is unacceptable.
Our rotating proxy network assigns a fresh IP for every request, enabling you to make thousands of requests per minute.
Whether you’ve coded a scraper in Python or bought existing third-party software, it’s always important to ensure that it functions as intended.
But regardless of how perfect the Reddit scraper is, it will be easily detected without proxies.
