Global bot monitoring initiative
We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the global bot monitoring initiative supported by world leading academic and research institutions
What’s It All About
This is a global research project aimed at collecting the most complete data on global bot traffic and making it available to a wide range of academic researchers.
The idea behind the project is simple:
- Participants set up servers that monitor some of the traffic to their websites for several months. This integration and traffic is under the complete control of the members.
- Anonymized traffic data is provided to academic researchers.
- Participants get access to all research results and marketing benefits of participating in the project.
BotGuard participates in the project as a server provider for monitoring bot traffic. We are the operator of the project infrastructure and do not provide any commercial services within the project.
What Do Program Participants Get
All businesses participating in the Global Bot Monitoring initiative will receive detailed analytical data on the nature and origin of their own traffic in the most complete form.
All participants will also have access to anonymized data on the results of global monitoring by country, industry and time period.
All participants will have access to all research carried out on the basis of monitoring bot traffic.
All businesses participating in the Global Bot Monitoring initiative will receive the status of an official partner and the opportunity to use it in their marketing activities.
How Much Does Participation Cost
Participation in the program is completely free.
If you have a significant amount of traffic or if you don’t want your traffic to leave the data center where your web servers are installed, you will need to provide a server to monitor the data. Server requirements are quite moderate, a regular VPS will work fine.
