Tracking spider indexing from logs

Msg#: 4334759 posted 11:41 am on Jul 4, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

Can anyone tell me how can I see when google bots are visiting my site, how far they crawled my site, all the pages they visited from each crawl etc.

What can I do to get that data?

I heard pwiki, crawltrack.net will do that. What do you think about these products? Are they reliable?

Someone please let me know.

They are in your raw log files, often one file per day, usually in a folder accessible only via FTP. Most servers only keep the last few days data, so you need to copy or download them regularly.

I find that Google isn't so much of a "crawl" as merely pulling one URL every few minutes or so.
