With all you data miners out there clicking and downloading everything
in sight, pretty soon you will only measure the noise created by data
miners, web crawlers and the like.

Google, yandex and the rest are already a signigicant amount of the
traffic for small sites.

What this means is that because you are introducing more and more
background noise into your data, you will only be able to measure the
really strong signals. That narrows what you can find, and you risk
that eventually you find only obvious things.
