Filter out Spider and Bot traffic from SiteCatalyst


Level 10


There should be an option to filter out all spider and bot traffic from SiteCatalyst reports, very similar to what was available from the HBX User Agent Filtering option. 





Excellent comments here. While bot traffic is currently a small percentage, we're looking into some ideas now, as more bots and spiders are starting to execute JavaScript and request images.

This is very good idea, not least regarding the Google Preview "spider" bloating traffic. I'd like to see this option also in Data Warehouse.

The bot handling reporting is looking really good.  Let me know if you would like to try it out in the beta environment.


Level 4


We have a very large amount of MSN bot traffic in our data - an MSN bot that executes java script. We had the same problem with Google preview bot last Nov.


Omniture needs to prevent bots that execute java script from getting in our data and more importantly we are PAYING for the server calls. How about refund???????? (lol)

This one is now implemented.  You can turn it on in the admin console and enable the IAB bot list with a single click.  Custom bot rules can also be created for user agents or IP addresses.
