Visits from Google crawler dont count as real visitors I think so I would like to exclude them from the stats (as well as the visits from other search engine crawlers).

They are all (generally at least) excluded already, since most are both image and Javascript disabled.

So you need to be more specific about what you want.
Also, give an example of an url coming from a search bot (crawler), if you see those in your stats.

Well maybe I am wrong. One comes from Google Mountain View:
google-proxy-66-249-83-76.google.com
IP: 66.249.83.76

The other one: Googlebot
crawl-66-249-65-201.googlebot.com
IP: 66.249.65.201

Both count as visitors I noticed.

I believe the google-proxy is a human visitor, but the crawl-66-249-65-201.googlebot.com is new to me.

Maybe Statcounter needs to edit the list of bots, or maybe they can explain it. So I have sent them a message about this. ;)
