I recently got interested in finding a popups with a script/bot/web crawler.
I made a basic script to check if i’ll get any popups out of links to advertisements like random ones.
I even used User-Agent headers
I also got couple of links from gen.sober.monster (site that has bunch of links that will likely give you a popup; simmilar to old popupdb
I tested everything, i changed proxies, used different links, changed my code and i was debuging for like 2 hours straight now.
I thought on python script working with requests but it doesn’t work with most of the links because those sites use JS to redirect you to the popup. i made a prototype of an actual bot and it just doesn’t work. (even used allow_redirects function, still doesn’t work)
tried using residental proxies and it didnt work either, any suggestions how can you get alot of popups in a short amount of time?
I used Requests with Python3.8 and hosted the bot on Ubuntu server.
