Tracking clicks on Short.cm
All URL shorteners are very different in their way of clicks tracking: what clicks they count, and what clicks they remove.
Your pages can be visited by both real users and internet bots. A lot of sites, search engines, use spidering as a way of providing up-to-date information. It should not be counted as a unique click or a manual visit.
We do tracking of bot/spider traffic in our statistics. Short.cm identifies whether it is a user’s click or a bot’s one. It is based on some radical differences on how they present and share data to and from our servers. You can see it in the statistics of the link. All human clicks are in the “Human” section.
In doing so, we can eliminate spider/bot traffic from our click counters and provide the statisctics with the utmost accuracy. Every click you see was made by a human.
