Admin statistics and robots?

looking at statistics on the admin dashboard of a small website I have created, I am really surprised by the (relatively) huge number of visits. i have not been able to find any explanation on how the plugin deals with visits from robots. I believe they might account for an important part of visitors on this website and explain why the figures are higher than I would expect but I would be interested in a confirmation.

Bot detection is not yet built into the statistics provided by Admin. It currently tracks every hit of the site, regardless of the client used.

Thanks flaviocopes, that confirms my feeling!

Best thing at the moment is to also use Google Analytics, which provides more filtering capabilities (although spambots are still bypassing it most of the times)
