A study by Incapsula suggests 56% of all website traffic is now generated by bots.
The company reported that for most websites bot traffic is between 63% and 80%.
2015 will be the rise of impersonator bots, while RSS bots seem to be on their way to extinction.

Hi Gail,

This is an interesting article about Bot visits, i never thought these bot views also will consider as visits to our websites,i am surprised to know out 1/3 of traffic is by bad bots, thank you very much sharing this article about bots.

And small sites get even more hits from bots.

I wish hosting services could give a permanent solution to this...

Erik,

That's sad - but that's the reality. On some of my sites, 70% visits are bots - mostly SE bots :/

Really impressive results.

It's interesting to note the inversely proportional data : small sites with high level of bots and large sites with low level of bots.

I'm pretty worried about the rise of impersonator bots, tough, Ivan.
