Robot considered as human?


#1

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.

First of all we don’t have Word Press on our installation, second, the result of whois says :
