Bots API Overview

Non-Human, Invalid Traffic API Overview

Protect against high-risk traffic sources (bad actors) and guard against ad-fraud in the form of Non-Human Invalid Traffic (IVT). Our sophisticated machine learning algorithms identify traffic originating from botnets, data center traffic, click farms, proxies, malicious script injectors and hijacked devices, , delivering the highest quality reach.

Our invalid traffic API can be seamlessly integrated into your signup or onboarding process with just a single request. This high-speed service is designed for real-time, verification of the IP address or traffic attempting to connect thru to your landing page.

Structure and Definition for Inbound Submissions

Our API requires you to authenticate each individual request. Below is an example of a basic URL structure request, just substitute with the provided account, associated password along with any optional parameters.

Structure: http://post.impressionwise.com/botcheck.aspx?CODE=000001&PWD=password1

Required Data Fields

Parameters need to be separated by "&"

&CODE= 6 Digit numeric, acccount code provided by Impressionwise = 000001
&PWD= Alpha-numeric, security code provided by Impressionwise = password1
&IP= Proper formatted IP address. An IP address is a set of numbers that identify your computer on a network. IPV4, the traditional numbering scheme, uses four integers ranging from zero to 255 and set apart by periods. For example, "204.120.0.15" is a valid IPV4 address.

Parameters and Usage

To verify an email address simply use the request shown in the sample below substituting the required parameters with provided credentials and email address you want to verify.

Sample = http://post.impressionwise.com/botcheck.aspx?code=000001&pwd=password1&IP=192.168.1.15

Upon successful posting of an email address, you can expect to receive the following response.

Response = IP=192.168.1.15&RESULT=SPAMBOT&TTP=0.41

Possible result parameter/values include:

&RESULT= "See below section Result Code section for additional detail"
&TTP= "Time it took to process value represented in seconds"

Error Handling

From time to time you may experience an API error. It is important to watch out for these and handle them appropriately. Specifically, if your submission contains an invalid account code or password the result response would be WRONG_PSW.

While it is uncommon some replies to take an excessive amount of time to respond (sometimes more than 5 seconds). Due to this possible condition, you will receive a result code of RETRY. Upon reception of this response, please continue your HTTP submissions thru to completion of the entire data set to be submitted.. Once complete, please retry any/all responses with "RETRY" or as shown below:

Response = IP=192.168.1.15&RESULT=RETRY&TTP=0.33

If you receive any other response other than those previously shown, please contact support.
