Displaying robots in Yandex.Metrica
Filtering robots in Yandex.Metrica reports helps you get accurate data. For example, bounce rate, time on site, and page depth.
How to understand which robots visit the site
You can use robot filtering by behavior if you use the Yandex.Metrica Logs API and you need non-aggregated data without robots. In other cases, change the data display mode in reports as described below.
Robots that have introduced themselves (their User-agent is known) are immediately excluded from the statistical data. You can view them in the Robots report. It will help you determine, for example, whether search robots come to the site to index pages. See How to check that a robot belongs to Yandex.
You can configure the display of robot sessions that are determined by behavior. By default, statistics are displayed without taking these sessions into account.
You can track the percentage of robots filtered by behavior:
- In reports
Use the metric "Percentage of robots". To add it, in the report Data settings, select with robots. After that, the Percentage of robots metric in reports option will be enabled and the metric will appear in the data table.
You can add thePercentage of robots metric even if the option is disabled. To do this, click Metrics in the report and select .
- On the Summary page
- Use the Data setting:
You can also use the widget:
- Without robots: The default setting.
- With robots: Select this option for the data to be recalculated taking robot sessions into account.
How to compare statistics with and without robot data
To compare statistics, in the report in the Data: without robots setting, select Compare with data with robots. This way you can see how robots affect your site. For example, robots may be the reason for a decrease in page depth and an increase in bounce rates.
