Loading pages with images off

Post by doug » Wed Aug 17, 2011 5:47 pm

I was scraping a site with rows that contained small google maps. After a time the images were replaced by substitutes so I took that as meaning something was getting overloaded. I changed IE options to not load images. My scraping worked with this setting as I wanted only the text data in the rows. Is this a good practice in general? Does it reduce the burden on the site?

Hi Doug,

Is a good idea to check Helium Scraper in the task manager once in a while. By my experience, working with no images doesn't do any difference. You might want to give it a try though, and let us know if it helped ;) .
