As AddSearch adds content from your site to the search index, the AddSearch bot or crawler gets counted as traffic by most analytics software. This inflates your traffic numbers somewhat. To get accurate traffic statistics, you need to exclude AddSearch’s crawler, called “AddSearchBot”, from your analytics.
The best way to filter out AddSearch (and some other known bots) is to exclude traffic from Amazon’s cloud computing platform. Here’s how:

  1. In Google Analytics, add a new filter from Google Analytic’s Admin -menu.
  2. In the filter settings, exclude all traffic from the ISP domain “”. You can do that by copying the settings from the image below:
  3. Done!
