I'm making a bot to scrape data from a website for study purposes. But I don't want them to catch it and block my ip. Basically what I do is scraping few images and few lines of texts.(using dom and html parsing with regex :- I know It's horrible , but this is for a simple set of webpages) What I already tried is running the bot in 2-3 minutes time intervals and scrape few data and turn off, will that be enough to not getting caught? Else , what should I do ? Most importantly what is your idea of making a bot which is not going to get caught.
This is just for research and study purposes , not violating the site's security policies .
Im just worried about if they see my unusual bot traffic and block my ip .
*trust me my bot is innocent *
