I have built my own adtracker using a plugin.

I noticed many bot requests that were counted as ad views, even though I was using qa_is_human_probably(). It was in my case an SEO bot with Mozilla ... as user agent.

I ended up using jquery and an ajax call to be sure it is not a bot and to have the correct human view count.

Just some thoughts.

What is the full User Agent string of that bot?

If a bot is using the UA of a regular browser there is very little we can do. Most of the places that check is done need to be done server-side I think. And using JavaScript is not a true solution either because many robots and spiders execute JavaScript now, like Googlebot.
