Hi, i have many of baidu fake traffic logs in Matomo on all my sites how to block or ignore this?
Are you sure it is a bot, as Baidu is also a web browser:
- Baidu Browser - Wikipedia
- To download Baidu browser: Baidu Browser- Téléchargement de l’application Android-Baidu Mobile Assistant
Also, which version of Matomo do you use?
i check server logs and it looks like Browser, but its fake for sure and i need to block or ignore this traffic in Matomo stats:
Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 8.1.0; zh-CN; EML-AL00 Build/HUAWEIEML-AL00) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Chrome/57.0.2987.108 baidu.sogo.uc.UCBrowser/188.8.131.524 UWS/184.108.40.206 Mobile Safari/537.36 AliApp(DingTalk/4.5.11) com.alibaba.android.rimet/10487439 Channel/227200 language/zh-CN
There is also a new Matomo plugin that might help:
thank you, i’ll check this
If you have access to your raw server logs, could you post some examples of what these requests look like?
