Real Impression Tracking in Bot Buster

There was an unexpected benefit to all this bot busting and information recording in that now I can track on a daily basis all pages served to legitimate bots, blocked bots and actual people. This has allowed me to come up with some simple stats that shows a breakdown of where pages are served and I'm getting real close to almost matching exactly what you see in Google AdSense for page impressions.

This side effect alone could be an enormous benefit to people that need actual page impressions vs bot page impressions for selling advertising on their website and I've just made it a heck of a lot simpler to get that information since every single page passes thru my code in real time.
