Make concurrent requests in C#

Our API is designed to allow you to have multiple concurrent scraping operations. That means you can speed up scraping for hundreds, thousands or even millions of pages per day, depending on your plan.

The more concurrent requests limit you have the more calls you can have active in parallel, and the faster you can scrape.
