bot/using (when a bot or tool assisted user - detected by the phrase 'using ', is encountered)
city (when an IP address was detected instead of a user)
country (when an IP address was detected instead of a user)
country code (when an IP address was detected instead of a user)
latitude (when an IP address was detected instead of a user)
