Support » Plugin: Page Visit Counter » Customer or Bot??

    How can you tell whether it was a customer on the page or whether it was a bot crawling the page?
    Is there any way of knowing if the visitor is “real”?

    Thanks

    Hello @hilux4x4,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Actually, our plugin is working based on the page visited by the browser by anyone.

    Once any page-load in the browser then, it will consider one visitor and it will increase one-page visit counter.

    For the security reason we have added one logic in which if any user or bot user tries to release page so many times then, it will only increase counter one time only.

    So, based on this security we can say that all the visitors are real. 🙂

    I hope this helps. Let us know still you have any query.

    Thanks,

    Thanks – So best way would be to see if the IP address visiting is listed as a bot / crawler etc?

    Hello @hilux4x4

    The current version we don’t provide IP address visiting with the different bot, crawlers etc.

    Thanks for suggesting me that feature. I will review it and implement in feature.

    Thanks
