Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to discuss the ideas about how botted users are affecting websites. The problem that comes when bots take over websites is that these botted users cause so much traffic that websites cannot scale well enough. Websites after the holidays see a mass decrease in the number of users on their sites. However, in 2021 and with years to come this has changed where we will see an increase. It is estimated that the number of bots on a website through 2021 is about 35% of all traffic. In this paper, I will discuss that we have increased this number and will see a sharp increase with years to come.
