Support » Plugin: Track, Analyze & Optimize by WP Tao » Update Crawler List filter

  • Was looking for exactly such tracker and guests capture plugin for a long time! (Let’s hope development will continue.)

    Kindly consider adding a new filter to update the crawlers list:

    \plugins\wp-tao\includes\class-wptao-fingerprints.php after line 388:

    private function crawler_detect() {
        $crawlers_agents = 'bot|rambler|yahoo|accoona|aspseek|cococrawler|fast-webcrawler|lycos|scooter|altavista|estyle|scrubby|wordpress|installatron|homepay|transferuj|java|flipboard|spider|ltx71';
        $crawlers_agents = apply_filters( 'wptao_crawlers_agents', $crawlers_agents ); //NEW
        return (preg_match( "/$crawlers_agents/", strtolower( $this->user_agent ) ) > 0);

    We can easily exclude more buggers now:

    add_filter( 'wptao_crawlers_agents', 'my_wptao_crawlers_agents' ); 
    function my_wptao_crawlers_agents( $crawlers_agents ) {
        $crawlers_agents .= 'crawl|semrush|mail\.ru|pinterest|zoominfo|velen\.io|facebook|daum\.net|seznam|megaindex|sogou';
        return $crawlers_agents;
