User Agent: ias-va/3.1 (+https://www.admantx.com/service-fetcher.html)
Hi, everyone. I read online that the above user agent is a service that advertisers can use to get a page rating telling them if they should place advertisements on it or not. ADmantX is beneficial if you are using some kind of web advertisement provider like [Google AdSense].
Superbotmode isnt well received here, until they allow requests that even mpvs here been asking for i think two years to be able to whitelist things in firewall rules its a dud.
Right now cf say add ip to allow list which is useless for situations like this, and adding ips then its bypassing all rules and waf, yes this is great for security isnt it Cloudflare and its security week, my lord…
Tldr, for ads superbot mode will affect rpm, even adsense to a small degree but adx and similar its crucial. many technologies exist like admanax exist or bidders either wont bid or bid half of what it should be if they cant reach your site to rate it or scan it etc for legit ad based purposes.
Personally make your own rules and fine tune, banning things like curl, wget, python, blank useragents so many easy things you can apply manually and whitelist if you see legit bots. Each site is different so testing is the key, do not copy and think is all good.
Searching these forums some great examples from mvps just a heads up.
