I want to see how bots are impacting site traffic, what can I do?
Blue Triangle maintains an ongoing list of common bots.
These common bots are excluded from standard data views by default. To view data with bots, or to view only bot data, you simply have to open up your filter options, scroll down until you see the "Bot Traffic" toggles. Select the desired bot view, then hit apply!
As bots are becoming more sophisticated, you may see some that are not excluded by default.
Post-Process Data Filters can also be used to assign specific traffic as bots via URL, IP, User Agent String, etc. Additional articles on Post-Process Data Filters can be found here.
