Webtrends Analytics 8.x
Webtrends Analytics 9.x


Webtrends’ ability to report and filter on spiders and bots is based on a regularly updated list included in the installation’s browsers.ini file. Our source is the IAB/ABCe International Spiders & Bots List, available through the Interactive Advertising Bureau located at http://www.iab.net. The browsers.ini file, along with the keywords.ini file, is updated approximately every quarter.
