I'd be grateful for advice on how to treat Yahoo Pipes in web statistics.

I understand that Pipes can be agents of real human beings, or not.

In the reports I work up, I try to exclude the (sigh) many, many bots, spiders, crawlers, etc.

The Pipes entries in my recent logs are not so easily classifiable.
If one IP# were responsible for all the entries, every 3 seconds, it would be pretty obvious. But there are lots of IP#, visiting every now and then, grabbing an RSS feed.
Not sure how to interpret it.

For that matter, I'm starting to see lots of visits from what look like personalized agents for iPads and so on (Trapit) -- that seems like a personal visit, it's not GoogleBot or Yandex. But I'm not clear on that either.

Advice welcome. Thank you for your time.

Any visits attributed to Trapit in your analytics are real human visits, not bots.
