    Is it possible to check if visitors are real or bot?

    I'm using wordpress and want to know if there are any plugins to help detect fake traffic?

    Can Google analytics detect fake visitors and how can I check it?

    Thanks

    Use Google Analytics, look for direct traffic with a really high bounce rate. I've been getting a ton of this lately, it's a real pain!

    I've checked my site. Too low avg. time and 100% bounce rate.
    As you said, it seems to be bot visitors.

    Looks like it. It sucks when you see that big spike in GA and get excited, only to find it's junk bot traffic!
