Like you copy someones follower list? or scarping?
I scrape from top page /Popular Niche with good amount of followers or celebrity
Dont you think that scarping a likes on photo or comments is better?
Hey, I was working on the development of my Instagram bot and I had the chance to test both of them (scraping a whole list && scraping from media likes/commentes), the engagement using likes/commentes are better and between likes && comments, comments show better engagement.
I get mine from the same niche posts/follower list. You grow much slower if you follow likes from a post, but they are definitely higher quality and increase engagement.
How do you scrap follower lists? ive have tried with imacros but it usually crashes at around 10,000. Can someone point me in the direction of a program? or tell me how to do it myself? I would prefer a free method. Thanks in advance.
What imacro screept are you using?
It was just a script to scroll down and collect the names but my browser would crash at about 10000
Does the list of names contain private accounts? Will they be followed?
It would just scrape the names into a cvs file and then I used a separate script to follow them. So yes it would pick up private users but I need the capability to scrap more than 10000
Probably due to memory exaustion. 10000 people on a single page with a browser probably takes gigs of memory.
Retry with a different strategy, less scrolling and more searching.
You are right. It was the memory. I'm not sure what you mean by more searching. I'm not even sure if imacros is capable of doing something like that with how Instagrams website it laid out.
do you guys follow provate accounts or are they not worth it?
If they follow the niche I will follow them. Private or not.
Separate names with a comma.
