    If you are just looking through member lists in a group? Not actually looking at member profiles, just constantly crusing through the member lists of different groups? ie scraping

    If so, anyone know the limits of how many group pages you can look through per day?

    Thanks

    I'm sure they don't, as i've been looking at many members profiles, then leaving quick, repeating on hundreds of profiles, if you do get suspended it will be temporary and nothing will happen to your account :)

    Looking profiles or reading profiles and suspending accounts? I am hearing a lot of bad things about these Social network sites.

    You will get your account back, but what i seen the past we need to pay for knowing who recently browsed our profile. This might shows you need to upgrade membership.

    LOL No they will not, probably the best little loophole on LinkedIn at the moment.

    I wouldn't say they would ban you for doing this no. I am pretty sure they will be looking out for those who are doing things they really shouldn't be doing in terms of anything illegal on the site rather than anything as small as this.

    Pretty sure they will have plenty of other things to worry about other than if members are scraping or going through member lists of different groups.

    LinkedIn will block you for going though the search results without actually opening each profile, even on a premium account. You get banned around the 3rd captcha prompt and then they will ask you for a gov id to unban.

    as i found:
    -searches for free accounts: you wil be limited if you hit the "commercial limit" it's really random and they don't release any info about it...seems that you can do no more than 70 searches (hit the search buttton counts one and every search page you see is counted 1)...this what i foudn but want to experiment and see
    - limit in viewing profiles: i do at least 150 views per day and still everything ok
    - limit in premium profiles ...you cannot make more than 100 searches

    Why should they have problem in just visiting?
    They have limits set every where so you upgrade.

    Haha! Nope, they won't block you for that. I once did a lead campaign, got over 15k accounts, didn't received any suspension.
