Web crawling agents play a vital role in managing and optimising web crawling activities. Here is a summary based on search results:

          -Proxy Management: Using proxies for web crawling is essential to avoid IP blocking and maintain anonymity. Proxies act as an intermediary between your computer and the target site, allowing you to hide your IP address and location, thus protecting your identity.

          -Types of proxies:
              1. Data Centre Proxies: These are generated using proxy servers in a data centre. They are cost-effective, but may be more easily detected by websites due to shared IP addresses.

              2. Residential proxies: These proxies use the IP address of the local ISP, making it harder for websites to detect them as crawlers. They offer better anonymity, but are more expensive.

              ISP Proxies: Static residential proxies hosted by data centre servers. They combine the functionality of both data centre and residential proxies

              4. Mobile proxies: These are IPs from private mobile devices that provide a high degree of anonymity, but are more expensive and have potential legal issues

          -Proxy Rotation: Proxy rotators are used to cycle through a pool of proxies for each request, preventing site detection. This helps avoid blocking and maintains a high level of anonymity.

          -Proxy management tips:
                -Recognising bans: Proxies should be able to detect various blocking methods and handle captchas or redirects effectively.

                -Retry Errors: If the proxy has connection problems or is blocking, it is recommended to retry the request using a different proxy server.
