It's not really a problem, but it is visible in the top ten pages that all can see, not that it really matters I suppose, as no real harm can be done if people see it. The top ten pages is not really an important page, it just gives visitors an idea of what is most popular.
Its a good point about using it to calculate real visits, thanks.
I guess it does go to show how many times the bots hit sites (lots)
Just one of the silly niggles, I guess I should just leave it alone and follow my own rule "if it aint broke dont fix it!"
