Robot considered as human?


Hi, I don’t know whether I should consider this as bug, but, piwik reports visits from IP 192.0.83.x. This looks like a search engine bot (see attached log). So I wonder why this is reported by Piwik? Or course, I didn’t configure Piwik to track bots.

Isn’t it WP plugin called mShots triggered from your local server which generates those “visits”?

You should then exclude it manually if so.
