How to filter bot traffic from Google Analytics

Those of you who are aware of bots will know that they skew your data, and artificially increase the amount of visits, unique visitors, conversions rates and average visit duration. It will negatively effect the results of your data that has been collected over a long period of time; so any visits that are from bots are still counted towards the total amount of visits.

In order to exclude bots from your data, you will have to enable a feature in Analytics’ reporting view settings. After this is enabled Analytics will automatically begin to filter your data by comparing visits to your site with known User Agents on the list.

However, you may see that your traffic has dropped slightly, this is common as bots boost your performance to a  ridiculously high result. Your new number of visits, unique visitors, average visit duration and bounce rate should be at a more sensible level after bots are disabled.
