Our new “bot” detection technology means more accurate article view reports for you.
If you checked your EzineArticles article reports recently, you might have noticed a slight change from the numbers you’re accustomed to seeing. What the reports are showing you now is actually a more accurate profile of the traffic your articles are generating.
After months of analyzing data, we have come up with a system that is more accurate in calculating actual “human” views versus “bot” views of your articles. This means the accuracy in the results is far more “real” and significantly reduces the number of false views from bots or scripts.
In the past, when one of these automated devices accessed an article it would occasionally be recorded by our systems as a view from a real human being. We have placed a tremendous amount of effort into recognizing and ignoring these non-human hits. The effort has paid off and your traffic reports are now more accurate than ever!
With our updated bot-detection technology, your article views will more accurately report how many times real human beings read your articles.
