I was reading one of my tech news and business blogs, when I read that bots account for 61% of internet traffic. I knew it would be but a matter of time. As several websites use bots to drive traffic, and even FB pages do the same I was told.
But to see it in print is amazing. So a lot of local and international websites may have been doing this for years making us think they were all that. But tell a lie often enough they say and it becomes the truth. SO could all the hype lead to a site not really popular becoming very popular by false traffic and maximizing the media to state it as so?
