I placed a hit counter on my home page. It seems to get lots of hits. Is this mostly because of bots?

What I have tried:

I have a hit counter on another page which doesn't get many hits.

It could be that your hit counter registers every time you run the web page locally from your development environment also?

Normally, hit counters shows more information on the analysis page - maybe look there for more information.

I's just code to increment a counter each time the page is loaded.
Where do you store the value of the counter?

I store it in a text file on the server. The file is in a public folder. I have another page with a counter that is accessed from the home page. The counter value is reasonable at what I expect.
