[Best Practice] Using GrowMeOrganic to Scrape Profiles from Instagram.

In this article, we’ll look at the best practices while scraping emails from Instagram using GrowMeOrganic. Followings are the best practices you need to take care of.

1. Unzip/Extract the file on Windows

*** ONLY FOR WINDOWS USER ***
A lot of people do actually forget to unzip the file. Make sure you have extracted the GrowMeOrganic.exe out of the downloaded GrowMeOrganic zip file. You can do this by right-clicking on the downloaded zip file and selecting “Extract All”. Watch this video if you don’t know how to unzip a file.

Also, make sure you always open the software (GrowMeOrganic.exe) from the extracted folder.

2. Do not use your personal or business account for Scraping.

To scrape data from Instgram, you’ll need to login with any Instagram credentials for accessing the API. While it’s completely legal to scrape the publicly available data, Instagram still doesn’t likes automation. Imagine if you started visiting thousands of profiles suddenly, wouldn’t that be a suspicious activity for Instagram? It would be very easy for Instagram to detect it’s an automation and they might flag or temporarily ban your account.

Make sure you’re never logging with accounts that do really matter to you. However, a little testing with your personal accounts wouldn’t actually hurt.

3. Do not use blank accounts

It would be extremely easy for Instagram to detect accounts that do not have any profile picture, bio, post, and followings. It is recommended that you create a new Instagram accounts that do have these characteristics.

• Name which sounds real
• Random Profile Picture
• A Bio that doesn’t sound gibberish.
• Follow some really big celebrity accounts.
• Have a few random posts (Can be avoided)
• Account should either be verified with a phone number or only use Gmail accounts to verify. (You can use temporary text verification services like GetSMSCode if you don’t want to use your personal phone number.)

If you don’t have time to create these accounts yourself, here are few ways you can get it:

• Go to a Digital Marketing/Freelance Group on Facebook and put a gig for accounts with the above requirements. Hire a few people and ask each of them to create accounts with the above requirements. (Not more than 5 from each person.) Also, this can be cheapest technique as we have noticed that people charge close to 0.3 – 0.4$ for each account.
• Go to websites like PicoWorkers, MicroWorkers for these small gigs, and hire people from there.
• Buy ready-made accounts from websites like AccsMarket, AccFarm, PVAAccountss if they does satisfy the above conditions.
• Send us an email to [email protected] to buy these accounts with all the best practices already applied.

4. Add More accounts to scrape fast.

GrowMeOrganic is the only software which makes your accounts work in parallel and not in the rotation format. Adding more Instagram accounts on “Manage Accounts” dashboard is like adding more employee to finish the scraping quickly job for you. 

Also, since the task gets divided among a lot of accounts, each accounts get enough delay after every API call they makes to Instagram for the data and that makes account look more humanistic and ensure a better life.

5. Use Proxies with multiple accounts.

Wouldn’t it be easy for Instagram to detect automation if you’re automating all your accounts at the same IP Address (location)? A proxy would be extremely helpful to bounce the location of each account to different geographical locations in the world. Yes, you’ve guessed it right; It’s kind of similar to VPN but VPN wouldn’t be helpful when you’re adding multiple accounts for scraping. 

While it may sound extremely complex to use proxies, but it’s actually a piece of cake. Check out this article on how to buy and use proxies within GrowMeOrganic.

6. Avoid IP Footprints while using proxies.

A lot of people do not read the proxy article completely and buys a bunch of proxies in a single click. The blunder that people make with proxies is using the proxies that have a common IP just different ports or IP in a serial fashion. e.g.-

*** Same IP just different port ***
-> 45.32.117.124:49592
-> 45.32.117.124:23480

*** IP in a serial fashion ***
-> 45.32.117.125
-> 45.32.117.126

These are bad practices while using proxies. To avoid these IP patterns, here are the following things you can do.

*** IF PURCHASING FROM PROXY6 (Alternative: proxy-seller)***

• If you’re choosing IPV6 proxies, make sure you purchase proxy one by one from different countries. If you need proxies more than available countries for IPV6, buy the next batch of the proxy after a few hours to avoid the serial pattern on the same country.
• Purchase IPV4 proxies if you can afford them as you won’t be getting serial IP patterns even if you buy proxies from the same country.

• If possible, try to purchase proxies from different providers/vendors/websites as the different company does have completely different IP locations. (Not so necessary, recommended website would even work better)

7. Scrape a limited amount of profiles per day.

If you’re already using GrowMeOrganic, you might have seen Max Username & Max Profile Visit. Let me just tell you the difference:

Max Username: Number of users that have been extracted after the the filtration and shown into the table.

Max Profile Visit: Number of users that have been scraped without filters. It is the total number accounts that have actually been visited by the software.

 

For every account that you add, you should not be visiting more than 500 profiles every day. It means if you’re adding 10 accounts, you should only visit 5000 profiles a day. However, you can actually increase the number of daily profile visit for each account to 2000 or even more; but these are the practices to ensure that accounts doesn’t get burned/banned so quickly.

8. Keep the speed-bar to 1x or even lower.

We have recently added a speed bar that gives you control upon how fast do you want to send request with each account to Instagram server for the data. You can actually set the speed bar to a bigger number if you need only few amount of data to test the niche you’re scraping from. But you should keep the speed bar to low if you’re going to keep the software running for a long time. Otherwise, Instagram would detect that extremely fast request and limit your account.

You should keep the speed bar to 1x or even low for the safety. Remember, solution to the slow speed is adding more accounts and scraping in parallel and the big numbers on  speed bar.

9. Use Schedule feature to act more like a human.

You cannot leave the software running all the time. Use the schedule feature to put the software on sleep after an interval of period. I wouldn’t be sharing the sleep time and interval period because If everybody used the same configurations, it would be easy for Instagram to detect this pattern. So, it would be better if you decide any random number for sleep time and interval on schedule dashboard. 

Absolutely, click here to download and try the software for free. You can use the software for as long as you want to. But there are following limitations on the free trial:

1. You can only scrape 50 profiles in one batch. To scrape even more, you’ll have to click on “Reset All” button and scrape 50 more profiles in next batch.

2. You will not be able to export or copy the scraped data from the table in free trial. However, you can actually see the data and validate it’s accuracy by typing out the profile on Instagram manually.

3. In premium version, you can pause the scraping process and resume it from the same point without even losing any data or collecting any duplicates. However, it is not possible in the free trial.

Absolutely not, GrowMeOrganic has a extremely easy to use user interface. Most of our customer claims our scraper to be the best software in terms of it’s convenience. 

Yes. GrowMeOrganic first looks for those emails in contact button and then looks for them in the bio if not found in contact button.

To access the Instagram data, we need credential of any Instagram account. However, we strongly recommend not using accounts that matters to you. Also, we never store your credentials on our server. It all stays on your machine’s local database.

The only way to scrape even faster is adding more accounts to “Manage Accounts” dashboard.

GrowMeOrganic is the only software which makes your accounts work in parallel and not in the rotation format. Adding more Instagram accounts on “Manage Accounts” dashboard is like adding more employee to finish the scraping quickly job for you. 

Also, since the task gets divided among a lot of accounts, each accounts get enough delay after every API call they makes to Instagram for the data and that makes account look more humanistic and ensure a better life.

You want to scrape really fast, so you’ve added more Instagram accounts credential to run and scrape in parallel.

But, wouldn’t it be easy for Instagram to detect automation if you’re running multiple accounts in parallel at the same IP Address or you call it location ? Proxies can disperse the location parallel accounts into different geographical location. Even if you’ve added all the accounts in one single application, the proxies will make Instagram think as if these accounts have been operating from several different locations in the world

While it may sound extremely complex to use proxies, but it’s actually a piece of cake which takes not more than 5 minutes to set up and it is cheaper as 0.06$. Check out this article on how to buy and use proxies within GrowMeOrganic.

 

If you’ve upgraded to the premium version, you can do that by pausing and resuming. It means you can pause the scrape at any point and close the app. You can resume from the same point without even collecting the same data that you did scraped earlier.

If you’re already using GrowMeOrganic, you might have seen Max Username & Max Profile Visit. Let me just tell you the difference:

Max Username: Number of users that have been extracted after the the filtration and shown into the table.

Max Profile Visit: Number of users that have been scraped without filters. It is the total number accounts that have actually been visited by the software.

 

For each Instagram account that you add, you should not be visiting more than 500 profiles every day. It means if you’re adding 10 accounts, you should only visit 5000 profiles a day.

Here are list of few reasons why GrowMeOrganic is the best choice for scraping Instagram:

1. Multi Threading Capabilities: It is the only software on the Internet that allows you to add unlimited Instagram accounts and make all of them work together to scrape in parallel. It means you can scrape like 100k profiles in one day if you add more Instagram accounts and proxies. One of our client recently claimed that he scraped over 1 million emails on Forex niche.

2. Best Pricing: No body in the market offers these features at this pricing. 

Few other software like J****e charges 69.95$/month and still lets you add only 70 profiles. On top of that, it’s extremely difficult to use J****e and it doesn’t even support “Scraping In Parallel”.

Another Chrome Extension P******M*** charges 49$/month and only let’s you scrape 10k profiles per day. It also doesn’t support features like “Scraping In Parallel” & “Pause and Resume”.

3. Supports Windows & Mac: There’s no other Instagram Scraper in the market that would support Mac as well.
