Visitor Report - Spiders/BotsThis report contains information about web spiders, bots or crawlers that accessed your web pages and ads. These agents are computer programs which gather data for search engines or other purposes. By default, ad serving is automatically blocked to known bots, spiders, agents, and search engines to ensure accurate reporting and that impressions and clicks are not artificially inflated. You can change this setting from the menu "My Account / Profile" and click on "Settings" tab. Since ad serving is blocked to these web bots, you do not need to worry about adding "nofollow" link attribute for your ads because the spiders cannot see or click on these ad links.
