Status Codes & Errors
With every response the ScrapeOps Proxy API will return a status code which indicates if the request was successful or failed.
The following is a list of possible status codes:
|Page requested does not exist.
|Bad request. Either your
url or query parameters are incorrectly formatted.
|You have consumed all your credits. Either turn off your scraper, or upgrade to a larger plan.
api_key included on request, or
api_key is invalid.
|Exceeded your concurrency limit.
|After retrying for up to 2 minutes, the API was unable to receive a successful response.
The ScrapeOps Proxy API only charges you for successful requests, which are
404 response codes.
200 responses will pass through response validation (checks for ban pages, CAPTCHAs, anti-bots, etc.) prior to returning a
200 response to your scraper.
If you find bad responses coming back as
200 status codes then reach out to our support team who will update the response validation system to catch these failed responses in future.
