In episode 325 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked about the team's thoughts on bot traffic and how to deal with it.
The exact question was:
My site is getting lots of quality traffic since doing link building to my SEO Shield, 45% spike so far, but now I'm also seeing a spike in “”/bot-traffic.icu/”” in my Google Analytics, basically bot spam traffic. Wondering if anyone ever sees this? Wondering if it matters? Wondering if you guys might be able to offer an explanation and/or any thoughts on bot traffic like this? What to be aware of? etc. Thanks!
