In episode 81 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the better ways in determining real website visits from bots.

The exact question was:

Here's my question: I've been building a ‘MyCitySEO' site for a couple months, using a 1 Tier network that I built that has around 15 properties (Web 2s and Social Accts); Haven't done my own videos yet, just YT embeds; starting to make my own infographics for these pages and going to start creating my own videos this week also. I'm ranking page 1 in Google within a week or less for every page/page group that I post, and using low to medium comp KWs (7-8 Keywords Groups, used in about 7 or 8 Page Groups/Silos, so far). Not using hosted PBNs. According to HostGator stats I'm getting around 4K – 6K visitors/month currently but may be just bots?
