When a spider crawls your site, are they counted as traffic to your site?


I don't think so, but if you want to know about your site traffic google analytics is good for you.

no i dont think so,its not comes under traffic.

When spider craws the site it is not counted as traffic because crawling is the process of an engine requesting -- and successfully downloading -- a unique URL. Obstacles to crawling include no links to a URL, server downtime, robots exclusion, or using links (such as some JavaScript links) from which bots cannot find a valid URL.

Nope, I don't think spiders are considered as traffic.
