Is the Bot Detection Power Up worth activating?

Hey peops,

Wondering how reliable/accurate is the bot detection power up? Will it block non bot traffic? How does it determine what is a bot and what isn’t?

I want to stop bots (who doesn’t) but I also don’t want it to prevent legit traffic.


Bot detection power-up does not prevent anything on it’s own. It gives you a conclusion on whether requests originates from a bot or not, that conclusion will be available in the headers of all requests received by sGTM.

It is on you to then use or not use it, and limit all or specific outgoing requests based on that conclusion.

So by enabling it you’re not losing anything automatically, rather you get an additional datapoint. My advise would be to whip up some test cases and see if it’s sufficient enough for your needs
