Are Most of Your Web Visitors Robots? (Infographic)

Incapsula, a web technology company produced an interesting infographic depicting the percentage of bots that visit websites. According to them, more than half of your visitors may be robots. The largest number of bots used (24.3%) are “impersonators” that are trying to bypass security solutions and which are commonly used to attack websites. The second and third respectively (12.2% and 6.6%) are legitimate robots that either fetch feeds or bring information to search engines. Good and bad bots are pretty evenly spread. It’s a good idea to understand a little more about them. Hope you enjoy the infographic:
