Filtering bots


#1

Piwik is filtering valid traffic as I wrote before, however is not filtering obvious bots.

Maximum page views per session today - 1097. Its not realistic, nothing but bot could do it.

The question is - where to look for bot filtering? Which file?

Thank you.

We do try to detect Google and Bing smartbots, but at this time, there is no general bot filter. Using piwik.js, bots that don’t execute JavaScript are automatically excluded.
