Introducing Friends of Sniffie Programme

Bot traffic can cause you worry as a website owner or a server admin. We get that. That’s why we want to make traffic generated by Sniffie even more friendly for you as a website owner, and help you to get rid of bad bots. This is why we are introducing Friends of Sniffie Programme. Gain awesome perks participating in the program!

Benefit 1: Identifiable traffic to your site

  • No longer will you worry if someone is using Sniffie to monitor your website.
  • All requests from the Sniffie platform use an identifiable user agent “sniffie” from one of the publicly listed Friends of Sniffie IP addresses.
  • Maximum frequency for Sniffie to monitor you site is capped at once every 6 hours – regardless if someone wants to monitor your site’s URLs with e.g. a 15min interval.
  • If you want to monitor your personal site with more frequent intervals than 6 hours, you are personally allowed to do that.

Benefit 2: Gain more Sniffie quota

  • Any sniffs you make on your site participating in the programme will not count towards Sniffie quotas. This practice is very common for our customers to enable automatic product matching.
  • Participating in the program allows you to gain 20% additional active URL quota.
  • You’ll also get 20% additional monthly sniff quota.
  • No hidden fees!
The period of this Sniffie study was initially 6 months.
Sniffie's bot blocker makes sure that no bad bots can access it.

Benefit 3: Free download of Sniffie’s sophisticated bot blocker

  • That’s right. We’ll provide you with Sniffie’s internal bot blocker for use free-of-charge. For life.
  • Our blocker helps you to mitigate “bad bot” behavior on your site
  • Eliminates denial-of-service (DoS) attacks efficiently
  • Customer installations are possible starting in 2017.

Pre-release available in February 2017

Full release of the program will coincide with Sniffie’s open beta launch (by Q2/2017). Sniffie’s free bot blocker installations are available starting later in 2017.
