Piwik not tracking bots despite modification


#1

I’ve been trying to get an idea of how many bots and from what search engines are visiting my site.

Couldn’t find anything in the panel so a quick search brought me to this Piwik faq: How to - Analytics Platform - Matomo

There has been absoultely no difference with the recommended addtion of the following code: &rec=1&bots=1

Is there a seprate page I’m just not seeing that logs bots?

Thanks!

Maybe try the Bot Tracker plugin? http://plugins.piwik.org/BotTracker

Thanks for that Matt, looked promising but it crashed my piwik installation.

Disregard, it’s a php problem. I needed to update to above 5.3 in order to install that module. I’ll create a new post. Thanks.

And you need at least BotTracker 0.46 just released if you’re using 2.2.

Note that plugin only works if you’re using PHP-API tracking. Won’t work with js and/or image tracking.
