2-Stage Bot Filtering
We have the best bot filtering of any affiliate link statistics tracker on the market and it’s due to our 2-stage filtering process.
On the first layer of filtering, we have a manual exclusions list where you can enter IP address ranges you wish to block from showing up in your statistics. These can be entered in three different ways:
1. Wildcard format: 1.2.3.*
2. CIDR format: 1.2.3/24 OR 22.214.171.124/255.255.255.0
3. Start-End IP format: 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52
Even though it’s a manual entry process, we have a built-in list for you to start with that you can populate into your manual exclusions list with a simple click of a button.
The second method of filtering is a fully automatic check against our own list of known bots. Each visitor that travels along your affiliate links is examined to determine if it’s a bot.
This final check not only includes bots from all the major search engines, but it includes many bots that aren’t as well known that people don’t generally know about.
With our 2-stage filtering process you can be assured that the statistics you’re looking at are the real deal.
Plays Nice With Other Add-ons
The Stats add-on also plays nice with other official ThirstyAffiliates Add-ons.
So if you have some of our other add-ons helping to optimize the affiliate linking process you’re all covered. Those features will carry on working as normal with the Stats add-on.
