My website is counting visitor views on certain pages. I noticed that Google and other Bots are "clicking" to my site like crazy and some of the pages get unrealistic view counts (compared to those produced by humans).
I am asking for best practice to exclude those bots from my view counts. Obvious a simple "user agent" contains "bot" won't do it.
I do not think there is a bullet prove solution nor I need one.
Note: I am using PHP + MySQL.
