NHT (which stands for non-human traffic) represents a range of traffic to websites that are driven by software agents or bots rather than real people. Bots can be utilized for both good or bad purposes but as a marketer this type of traffic must be considered especially when you are measuring the success of your campaigns. Bots will not only skew analytics for a website but they will also generate a lot of ad impressions and clicks. A ton of extra and unmeaningful impressions and clicks can negatively impact ROI, ROAS, and other KPIs that matter to measure the success of a business.
