"One of our sites was almost 80% bots, while some of the premium domains were around 10%. Now, we don't have to deal with them at all."

Solving the bot problem once and for all

TABcom is a multi-divisional internet company focused on the development of premium domains in the pet, equine, outdoor, and eco-friendly spaces, including dog.com, horse.com, solar.com and garden.com.


TABcom’s platform and infrastructure offer online experiences that are at the pinnacle of their respective verticals. As just one example, the company is the largest online retailer of equine products worldwide.


“Competitors use bots to perform an ‘Add To Cart’ action, then scrape for price. If we drop our price to $1.99, an hour later it could be $1.98 at another site. Then the competitor’s product appears higher in search engine price sorts. Boom; we just lost a sale. Also, those types of queries represent a high computational hit, taxing our backend servers and impacting site performance, ” Frenchu says.
