WP Popular Posts counts page views correctly when I check the admin panel and visit a page in incognito mode. However, the stats are getting majorly skewed.
In the last 24 hours, Google Analytics shows 162 pageviews. WPPP shows over 1000 views just for the top 10 posts! Looking through my access logs, I see a lot of bots (Googlebot, Baiduspider, AhrefsBot, linkdexbot, Ezooms, etc). I assume the bot hits are being counted as views. Is there a way to ignore these?
