JProNoHitCount is compatible with Joomla! versions 2.5+ and 3+. It's Joomla! R3ADY!

JProNoHitCount content plugin selectively disables articles' hit counts when the user or users, assigned to specific groups, visit the articles on the fron end of your website. On the new version 1.0.1, a list of over 300 robots has been included and now the option to disable hit counts from robots. This is a very useful system, especially when editing articles on the front end of your Joomla! website.

It's a one step install plugin, than can be configured in less than 10 seconds!! Just select the group or groups, enable the plugin and you're ready to go!

Didn't Work For Me

Posted on 31 August 2013
I have a new Joomla 3 site and would like to use the Most Popular articles module. However, I would like to exclude the hits from robots and web crawlers. The JProExtensions website claims:

“Robots visiting your pages will not count hits (a list of over 300 bots is checked for matching visitor type)”

(I assume they mean the hits from over 300 robots will not be counted)

I installed the plug, and while it did prevent selected User Groups from incrementing Article Hit Counters (as advertised), it did NOT seem to affect the bots. I emailed support and was told:

“The only way you can avoid that is to disable all hit counts… no way in the world you'll be able to keep bots from hitting your articles, unless they are not publicly accessible. Our extension is just a tool that gives a hand to the problem.”

I was given a list of bots in the code that the plug was supposed to block, and indeed, googlebot was among the many bots listed. I watched my top article counts in the Control Panel, refreshing the page every 60 seconds until one article showed a hit. I went to the access log, and sure enough, another hit from googlebot.

I replied to support that I didn’t expect the plugin to block ALL bots, but “GoogleBot???” I would think it would at least block that one.

I received no reply.

I’m sure they’ll say it’s my fault. I’m just saying… it didn’t work for me.
I worked with Mario in the making of this extension. I helped test and sharpen the idea. He did very well at the creation of this simple but well built plugin. Not only does it allow you to choose usergroups, but this makes it possible to make it so when a user looks at his own articles it does not add hits. But when that user looks at other articles that he/she didn't write the hits are still counted. This also works with the extension Joomgallery for the hit counter. I've wanted this for a long time and am happy that someone went out to make it at a very cheap price.
