I'm developing a web app using NodeJS.
Requesting an image using my browser, I get the appropriate response. Requesting the same image in my code (back-end server) I am getting this following response:
STATUS: 403 forbidden
<h1>Wordpress RSS Reader, Anonymous Bot or Scraper Blocked</h1>
Sorry we do not allow WordPress plugins to scrape our site. They tend to be used maliciously to steal our content. We do not allow scraping of any kind.
You can load our RSS feeds using any other reader but you may not download our content.
<a href='/feeds'>Click here more information on our feeds</a>
Or you're running a bot that does not provide a unique user agent.
Please provide a UNIQUE user agent that describes you. Do not use a default user agent like "PHP", "Java", "Ruby", "wget", "curl" etc.
You MUST provide a UNIQUE user agent. ...and for God's sake don't impersonate another bot like Google Bot that will for sure
get you permanently banned.
Or.... maybe you're running an LG Podcast player written by a 10 year old. Either way, Please stop doing that.
What am I doing wrong? As I understand it is not a problem with my API key, so what is it?
