Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders

Today I decided to take a look at my Google Analytics for this website and I had way more traffic than a site like this ought to have.

Drilling down into the stats I noticed that most of the traffic must be from either bots or spiders.

Google Analytics does have a setting though to filter those out.

Login to your analytics and go to View Settings where there will be a Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders checkbox.

Make sure that is checked.
