AWStats can detect robots visits: Is that what I am looking for? If I set it to 0, will the bots visits be added to the total visits, or the bots in this case will be deleted from the reports? A rule of carries is that the more farm a carry requires to be effective, the more power they can attain relative to other carries. I've been going through the documentation, but I couldn't find anything helpful apart from this one: For example, if you're site was submitted to all famous search engines, robots can make visits a month, to find updates or to see if your site is still online. Products that are not able to do this give you false information, above all if your site has few visitors.
