What is the BOT name to exclude when you use GEOIP on your website?

Hi guys,

 

I am creating experiments - and as I load up the URL - I get an error message.

 

This is happening as I have a GEOIP redirect in place - and Optimizely's site crawler is clearly based in the US. Is there a BOT I can add to exclude it from the GEOIP functionality?

 

Thanks,

Geet

Hi Geet,

Thank you for reaching out to the Optimizely community!

I was unable to reproduce your error.
What browser and what exstensions are you using?
This will help me troubleshoot your issue further.

Thanks so much for getting back to me!

We have removed our GEOIP re-direct, so you won't be able to replicate the issue. But, I will need to put that GEO-IP redirect back in at some point.

Usually - with other companies based in the US (such as moz.com), I simply enter a BOT user agent provided by them that bypasses the GEOIP redirect function - and was hoping you might have one to provide.

I'm using Chrome - but what info do you need on extensions? Not sure what I need to provide here, please let me know :s

Kindest regards,
