How advanced is stat reporting? (bots/humans)

I am just curious on how advanced is stat reporting in piwik?

The reason I ask is because with the stats I am looking at on cpanel:

In the last hour: 20 unique visitors are logged
In the last hour: google live shows 0 visitors on site.

Bogus stats are worthless, and my only conclusion is that these advanced bots that visit
my site pretend to be human, then just end up increasing the unique visitor count…

Can Piwik clearly tell the difference between who is real, and who is not? I know it
can using Live, but when it starts to add up unique visitors, then I need the stats
to be correct, not misleading such as including bots in visitor count…


Yes Piwik will show you accurately the visits and will ignore bots or automatic requests.
