    Hello,
    We just started using your plug-in, and I don’t see a way of not counting bots/crawlers who are pinging the site.

    Really, we are only interest in counting real page views from real people who are accessing the site.

    Can I filter out bots/crawlers from the count?

    Thanks!

    Hello lshr,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Actually, our plugin counting the users by 24 hours cookie.

    There is no way to check if the site is open by the bots/crawlers but, once a site opens first time then it will count as 1 and within 24 hours if that page opens many times then it will always count as 1 and after 24 hours it will increase the count to 2.

    If bots/crawlers open the pages and if there is any way to clear the cookie then it might increase the count.

    Regards,
    Hitendra & Dotstore team
