Some of your traffic may also be accounted for by bots and scrapers.

-Almost certainly! That's in part why I tend to assume my actual readership is well below the stated traffic numbers. And it's the same reason why even the IT professionals can't always say with anything close to certainty what your actual traffic stats are.

I vote custom ads, especially if it's for your own stuff. If rarely if ever block that sort of ad as I am already invested in the sites I visit and If I see an interesting product from them when I have money to spare I am more likely to shell out real cash for it than I am from say any randomly generated or so-called "targeted" ads.
