To view the report:.
An example of this report is available for the Yandex.Metrica demo tag.
Ways to use this report
- Check robot activity during increased load on the site
- If your website is loading slower than usual and often returns a 500 HTTP error code, you can check where most of the requests are coming from: real users or robots.
Open the Load on site report. This tells you if there are surges in activity.
Open the Robots report and select the date or period when you noticed a surge in activity. The report also displays requests sent by robots and their names.
Report structure and settings
The table shows the number of times the Yandex.Metrica tag sent data about robot activity on the site (other than Session Replay sending data). The information is displayed in rows, broken down by filtration rules.
Statistics filters are shown in a separate line and are not elaborated on. For strict rules, the rule that was triggered is shown. For example, the name of the robot that noted itself in the
User Agent directive is shown.
To not filter these types of pageviews, enable the Include all robot sessions option on the Settings page (Filters tab).
For some websites, a certain persistent volume of robot traffic is not critical. In this case, the filter selection remains up to the tag owner's discretion.
