Bot occurrences

The ‘Bot occurrences’ metric shows the number of hits that matched Bot rules.

Since bot reporting is separated from the rest of your report suite data, this metric only works with the following dimensions:

Using any other dimension with this metric does not return data.

How this metric is calculated

Adobe checks every hit to see if it matches bot rules that your organization has configured. If a given hit matches a bot rule, the hit is excluded from reporting, and this metric increases by one. This metric includes both page views (t()) and link tracking hits (tl()), whereas Bot page views do not include link tracking hits.
