They started coming about 2 months ago....
I get bots masquerading as visitors directly hitting pages on one of my websites and messing up my stats. Most of them originate from US ip addresses as well as a few from Canada and random European countries.
They all have the same characteristics of Mac OS 10 with the Firefox browser and screen resolution of 1280x1024.
Its driving me nuts. It is not a high traffic website, only a couple of hundred uniques a day so with 50 or so hits from these bots it is really messing with my analytics.
Is there any way I can block these? I cannot block ip addresses because they appear to be random.
