The majority of search traffic in our Search Analytics is being identified as coming from Google Inc.
Is there a way to easily exclude this from our analytics?
At the moment the only way I can see to do this is to identify the IP addresses from the points on the map when you hover on them and then add these IP addresses to the reporting-blacklist.cfg file
ignore any query from Google bot
I am assuming the analytics tool is doing something more sophisticated to reverse lookup all IPs to determine that it is from Google.
Is there a way to use this method to avoid building up a list of IPs which are liable to change in the future?
