AFS Analytics allows you to exclude your own, or undesirable traffic (bots, crawlers) from your reports. There are 3 different filters available.
Note: Since the 13 September 2017, all Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuck, Msn, AOL, Baidu and Yandex bots and crawlers are excluded from AFS Analytics automatically.
With IP/Hostname filter you can exclude the traffic from your company or another to your web site. To do this, enter hostname or IP address of the company in the IP/hostname field and click the “add” button. You can enter a complete hostname or just a part of it. If you enter 'yahoo', all hostnames containing 'yahoo' will be removed. Wilcards are no needed. Also, you can exclude bots traffic by typing the string to check in the "User agent". If you type 'GoogleBot', all traffic containing "GoogleBot" in the 'User Agent' string will be excluded.
There is no need to report traffic generator from hacking websites as Semalt.com or Buttons-for-website.com. If traffic arrives from these websites, it can be excluded from your statistics. To do this, enter the domain name in the referrer field and click the “add” button. You can enter a complete URL or just a part of it. If you enter 'yahoo.com', all referrer containing 'yahoo.com' will be removed
