tracking unique visitors

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I wonder - how do tools like Google Analytics differ real unique users
from all those millions of bots, crawlers, and so on?
Do they have a blacklist of all bots and spammers, do they have a
whitelist of all valid internet providers,
is it based on IP ranges, or "Javascript=active", or what????

Thanks in advance,
