I am writing in a different part of the complex as my laptop is in computer ER in order to repair the DVD/CD Drive. I am therefore downstairs on a slightly older computer with less resources at hand.
It is also as dark as a dungeon in here (the cover for any technical mistakes).
Recent 'Redmond, Washington' blog pageviews appearing on Stats Counter with further information now explain the frequent Revolver application 'Redmond, Washington' US flag as a MSN bot.
This makes sense, but should be eliminated by web programs, in my opinion as visible and traceable for the sake of those with sites.
Especially those with web businesses, even more so than career bloggers like me, as in my blogs are associated with my academic career.
'Mountain View, California' pageviews are from Google and are sometimes a Google bot and are sometimes connected to Google Web Preview and various ISPs.
Therefore, pageviews from Google may still be from an actual flesh and blood human entity, but with the less than personal nature of these views whether they are from a human source or a bot, is there much practical difference?
If Microsoft and Google want to boost my pageview numbers with bots, that is in their power.
Even so, I have estimated compared to my actually Blogger statistics, Stats Counter, Site Meter, Revolver and Hi Stats still likely only count 25%-40% of my pageviews.
Are the rest bots or human?
Are you perhaps a bot and not aware?
On Revolver there are still US flags that are not necessarily explained and could connect to an ISP and sometimes may. From my reading with many American Internet Service Providers, US States are not listed as accurate but are only estimates.
I can understand how someone running a business online would find it difficult determining market regions, as I have read.
