Default What percentage of your visitors are robots?

It seems that around 60% of my visitors these days are robots, which has to skew the statistics.

I sell advertising on some of my pages, and am wondering what other people do about the effect of robots on their statistics when selling advertising space. I should say that the advertisers I attract are happy to advertise because they know that their potential customers visit the site, but there is this little ethical bug that tells me I should qualify any traffic statistics if asked about actual figures.

What are your robot statistics, and what do you tell your customers?
