Country info was created by Wim Ruiterkamp
In version 2.1.3 I notice that country info still scores 68% for the USA and only 28% for the Netherlands, which is remarkable for a modest local dutch historical society.
Could it be that the bots are still counted for analyzing country information?

hi,
check is based on checking client with content of  variable "HTTP_USER_AGENT" for bots. Unfortunately (bad) clients (bots)  could fake this content and tell that they are humans (e.g. set content to a valid browser like Firefox. Therefore correct checks for bots can only  be done by checking behavioir of client (e.g. as done with  captchas). For a visitor counter this would be much too complicated and an excessive effort.

Thanks,
Fortunately, I can just skip this functionality by setting the number of countries to 0.
