How to block / not count HTTP HEAD requests?


Recommended Posts

We sometimes see certain bots crawling our website, thereby also sending HEAD requests on banner links (HEAD requests are like a normal HTTP GET request, but request only the HTTP header and not the actual body). Revive counts the HEAD requests like normal clicks on the buttons leading to very high click number, CTR on those days.

Is there an option in Revive to disable counting HEAD requests?

If not: Does anyone see a legitimate reason to allow HEAD requests at all on Revive banners? Otherwise we could block them already on the web server.
