    All traffic sources sent a total of 1,087 visits since January 1, 2011

    12.70% Direct Traffic
    6.44% Referring Sites
    80.86% Search Engines

    1,118 Absolute Unique Visitors
    00:00:31 Time on Site
    87.99% Bounce Rate
    86.04% New Visits


    I had to install Invisible Captcha on my Wordpress Blog because I was getting daily spam comments.


    Any thoughts?

    What are you trying to do? Spam is all too common when you have a wp blog, I use the Akismet plugin to automatically delete spam, it works very well.

    You might try a plugin like 'Bad Behavior' to cut down on the bots.

    Well you see my stats, I am asking if Google Analytics results are BOTS or not. How can I tell?

    If those are your analytics stats then the 80.86% represents the amount of traffic coming from search engines, not actual search engines crawling your site.

    Underneath the figures you've provided you will see a link that says "view report". Click the link and you will be able to tell what terms people are using to find your websites, and which search engines are sending you traffic. While it's possible that some of your organic traffic is coming from bots, the majority are most likely actual visitors.

    thanks mate! Are these numbers decent for a new site? The bounce rate is 80+%

    Right those are visitors finding your site through search engines like google, bing, yahoo. That is pretty good, 1100 visitors a month is a good start for a new site, don't expect to get rich from that though. Looks like you might want to start working on driving traffic to your site, or try to get your page rank up. You still have a lot of work to do from here, but at least you have a site and are ready to go.

    I use this in my htaccess file. Change your url links to use.

    Code:
       
     
     
     
     
    Block Proxy Servers
    Use the code below to block visitors going through proxy servers. Many spammers use proxy servers so the below code in .htaccess could help, but it may also block some real visitors.
     
    # BEGIN ANTI PROXY SERVERS
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:VIA} !^$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:FORWARDED} !^$ [OR]

    you can do what tq is doing, and you should draw more traffic because it doesn't look like you get any .. better keywords, less spam
