We have a few bots that work for us :)

A few use-cases where we use our bots:

  • When a customer adds a website we check if the script is installed correctly
  • If a website doesn’t have traffic anymore, we send a fake page view to detect our (missing) script
    (it’s blocked by most analytics tools because we add bot in the User-Agent string)
  • We also check which technologies are used on their website so we can show the best plugin for their needs
  • We generate screenshots of public referral pages

You can to disable alerts for your missing script in your website settings.

The bots are usually identified with this User-Agent string:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; SimpleAnalyticsBot/1.0; +
