    Analytics and bots

    Is there any reliable way through your hosting providers cpanel or perhaps google analytics to remove or filter out spiders and crawlers to get a more accurate view on the usage of your site?

    I am not sure about hosting providers and or cpanel but with Google analytics you can definitely filter out the bots.

    To filter bot traffic from Google Analytics, go to your Admin settings. Under the View panel, you’ll find View Settings. Toward the bottom of the options, just before Site Search Settings, you’ll find a small heading for Bot Filtering with a checkbox that reads: Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders. Check it, and you’ll automatically filter the known bots and spiders from your Analytics collecting.

    Bots, that means we can filter out them on every platform, isn't it? The setting option you disclosed was quite easy to understand but pick out time to consider upon my question. Thanks!
