How to crawl Shopify websites?

Modified on Tue, 19 Mar 2024 at 04:05 PM

Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Reduce the number of crawling threads: Shopify websites can be resource-intensive, and crawling them with too many threads can cause them to slow down or crash. To avoid this, we recommend reducing the number of crawling threads. You can follow our guide on how to reduce the load on a website caused by Netpeak Spider to learn how to do this.

2. Use proxies: Proxies can be helpful when crawling Shopify websites, as they allow you to distribute the load across multiple IP addresses. This can help you avoid getting blocked by the website's security measures. We successfully crawled 6K URLs of a Shopify website using 5 crawling threads and 5 proxies.

3. Configure crawling rules: If you only want to crawl a specific part of the website, you can use crawling rules to configure your crawler. This will help you avoid crawling unnecessary pages and save time and resources. You can use our guide on crawling rules configuration to learn how to do this.
