[resolved] Ignore bot access (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I noticed that most of my "subscribers" are actually bots.

    My feed was accessed a few times by bingbot and Googlebot, and this completely skewed my subscriber count.

    Shouldn't bot access be ignored?

    Thanks

    Bots are difficult to account for because there are so many.. but I like your idea and will try to add an option to "ignore" visits from the most common bots/spiders (e.g., googlebot, bingbot, et al). Thanks for the feedback.
