5. How to keep my account safe when I scrape LinkedIn Sales Navigator?


There are two limitations for LinkedIn Sales Navigator scraping:

  1. The Sales Navigator Search Results Limitation
  2. The Sales Navigator Scraping Limitation

5.1. The Sales Navigator Search Results Limitation


This limit exists because LinkedIn only shows 100 pages of results on Sales Navigator, and there are 25 prospects per page (25*100=2500).


null


LinkedIn imposes this limit to protect it database from abusive scraper that want to extract all data available on LinkedIn.

So if there is more than 2500 prospects in your search, you'll need to split it into several chunks to be able to extract all your leads from Sales Navigator.


5.1. The Sales Navigator Extraction Limitation


LinkedIn has built technical systems to protect it database from abusive scrapers.

Among them, the limitation of page visits.

Normally, you are limited to 1000 profile visits per day.

With Evaboot, you can extract up to 2500 leads per day because we built a specific system that is completely safe for your account.

We scrap every profile with prospect and company pages in order to provide you detailed information about your targets and filter your results.

That way you can get ALL the data available on LinkedIn on your prospect 😉
