Slow Scraping from particular site

Post by Wiltspt » Mon Dec 09, 2013 11:26 am

Hi I am sure this is a noob issue as I am new to Helium but I am having an issue with scraping profile information from LinkedIn.

I have a simple project setup which navigates each profile name Kind, and extracts a kind called "Skills"

The project does work but takes up to 5 mins to extract from each profile name.

In order to check it wasnt a resource issue I did a similar scrape from another site, a forum in this case, and it ran just fine.

Anyone got any ideas?

Please see the other post similar to your problem:

Make sure that you set a timeout. Also, you might want to reboot your computer to free up memory.
