Do you want to understand how bots crawl your website? Log Hero helps you track and visualize bots, spiders, and crawlers by making them visible in real time in your Google Analytics account so that you can analyze them like human visitors.

His additional dimensions and metrics help you analyze the bot data even better. Using Log Hero, you won’t have to fetch your server logs and analyze them in a lousy UI. From now on, your logs are available in real-time in Google Analytics.

Data that you can monitor in Google Analytics

  • Page path of your crawled sites (see how often a bot crawls sites).
  • User agent (how the bot identifies himself).
  • IP addresses (only for bots, so 100% GDPR and privacy compliant).
  • Sessions and users (monitor bots and their flow as if they were human visitors).
  • HTTP status codes (monitor status codes of individual sites, find broken links, redirect chains, server failures).
  • Download times (how long the bot needs to download your content).
  • [Premium] Device category (which device category the bot used. I.e., see whether Google crawled you with the mobile or desktop bot).
  • [Premium] Bot name (Using user agent and the IP address, we check whether the bot is whom he claims he is).
  • [Premium] Request method (see what request method (PUT or GET) bots used on your site).
  • [Premium] Referral / channel (analyze through which links bots came to your site to crawl you).
  • [Premium] Location (see where the visitor or bot is from).
  • [Premium] IsBot (see at a first glance whether it’s a bot or a human).
  • [Premium] Spam detection (check how many spam bots visit your site and what type they are).
  • [Premium] Attack detection (get a warning if someone tries to attack or hack your site).

Analysis in Google Analytics

All data is safely stored in your Google Analytics account and available even if you won’t continue using Log Hero.

  • Easy filtering of your data in Google Analytics (works with regular expressions, too).
  • Advanced and fast segment analysis.
  • Real-time monitoring of your data.
  • Easy exporting of your data as Excel, CSV, or Google Sheets.
  • Analysis of large data sets through Google Analytics’ API.
