SiteGuardian can probably do it for you at a cost lower than what it 
takes to develop yourself (unless you have a lot of cheap time on your 
hands.) I've found their service accurate and reasonably priced.

SiteGuardian stats were undisputable proof that an ISV we used a couple 
of years ago was not delivering the level of service that was 
advertised. In that case, the SiteGuardian fee was easily recovered in 
the refund we negotiated with the ISP.
