Filtering out bot visits in our reports

Avatar

Level 1

Can anybody advise how i would create a segment that filters out data, if we have over 50 visits in a day from an IP address.  I have previously been excluding IP addresses using the exclude by IP tool, but we are constantly seeing new IP ranges crawling our sites, so would like to make a segment that filters out any data from any IP address that visits over 50 times in any given day.  Any help would be appreciated

Hi there,

We use a mixture of Browser Type, Domain and IP (which we use a prop to capture). We then have a Virtual report suite that has a segment that excludes that traffic. Works quite well.

Thanks

We have also created the following metric to help identify "bot traffic":
