Recurring visitors with 0 reading time and 100% bounce rate

I’m wondering why I have visits without reading time (see screenshot). I think these might be bots that come check up on my site. Does anybody know what this is about? It’s a WordPress site.

I think I have the same problem. Matomo really has lots of problems properly tracking visitors - from incorrect time on page to completely ignoring visits on a few pages…

Hello Progonkpa,

yes, its looks like the typical behaviour of (spam-referrer-) bots. Similar on my site.

To prove this, compare the date and time of your server log entries with the corresponding date and time from matomo-logs and find to whom the IP addresses of the server log entries belong.

Roundabout 25% of all visits on my sites come from these kind of bots.
