Better Bot Removal

Need:

I'd like some better bot exclusion features at some point. 

 

Business case:

Our company is pretty large, so we get hit with bots all the time.  The only way we can exclude effectively is through segments, but they get massive and slow down data retrieval.

 

Current solutions:

-The current out-of-box bot removal only allows for exclusion by IP, which is not useful (since bots cycle IPs now).

-The auto exclude bots misses pretty much all of the bots as well.

-This means we need to use custom segments to exclude certain domain/city/browser combinations or various forms of entry page/domain/Operating systems in order   to exclude these bots.

 

Possible Suggestions:

-Exclude visits where a hit occurs x amount of times a minute from the same domain?

-Exclude visits where a hit occurs x times a minute from same cookie ID?

 

I'd love other suggestions from the community on what else could be added
