Bypassing TripAdvisor Anti-Scraping Tactics
TripAdvisor website employs anti-scraping techniques to prevent data automation software like WebHarvy from scraping data from its pages. To overcome these blocks we need to tweak some WebHarvy settings.
Go to the Browser tab of Settings window and enable the Use separate browser engine for mining links option as shown below. Then Apply changes.
Since these settings are specific to TripAdvisor website, make sure that you reset settings to default values before attempting to scrape other websites. You can also follow the guidelines provided for scraping data anonymously without getting blocked.
