I'm sure this will have been asked before, but I couldn't find it.
What I'm trying to do is give a rough estimate as to how many visitors have hit each page in one of our sites. Basically, all I have to go off is the user agent. I'm logging all accesses, including all bots, but I want to filter out anything that is obviously a bot.
These figures only need to be rough, so I'm not worried about the odd access here and there being missed or included.
Is there a really quick way that you guys know of to do this?
Could it be as simple as checking for the string 'bot' - do you think that would grab 80% of the bots? I'd be fine with that!
