Increase in bot traffic

Created by Peter Frøkjær Strand, Modified on Thu, 08 Feb 2024 at 11:04 PM by Peter Frøkjær Strand

Starting in 2024, we've seen more bot traffic on Shopify stores. It's important to know that not all bots are bad; they can range from helpful search engine crawlers to harmful bots.

Currently, we are seeing a bot type that seem to fill up the cart with large quantities of products. This is harmless traffic, but it disturbs the statistics. 

To help you better understand and manage this bot traffic, we're adding a new feature to our Shopify analytics app. This feature will let you see bot traffic separately from human traffic. With it, you can get a clearer idea of how much bot traffic your store gets and what kind it is, helping you make better decisions for your store's online health and security.

This update is all about giving you clearer insights with less hassle. Keep an eye out for it, and let us know if you have any questions or feedback!
