Is there an easy way to differentiate between a real human visitor and a bot or a scraper? Since I have an e-commerce site, if people don't put anything in the shopping cart and just seem to be accessing lots of pages, I assume they are not there to buy anything. You have to put a product in the cart to determine shipping. Can you tell by the IP? The UA? Something else? Would love to get rid of all the clutter in my server logs.
As for foreign visitors, most of mine are from China, Russia, Romania, Brazil and I get lots from the UK and Australia, but they seem to just be looking.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
