Excluding Bot Traffic

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi All,

 

I'm looking to exclude bot traffic by Network Domain. I made sure to set up a test view in order to see what impacts this option might have on data collection, however when I proceed to add a custom filter, Network Domain isn't an available filter option. Also, It appears Service Provider isn't an option as well - unless I misinterpreted the definitions of ISP Organizations and ISP Domain, which are available filter options. Can anyone provide some alternatives on how best to block bot traffic via specific bot profiling.

 

Thanks,

Kat
