Analysing my latest pages on Google, i looked at their cach version to see if it coincided with the exact date of my submission and their spider in my log.

To cut a long story short, i got to the foot of the page and noticed the text;
img src="http://insight_ ...................

This comes up so frequently, not just google and i would eat beetroot for anyone who can tell me what it is exactly.

If you are seeing html being displayed on the page, you are probably just missing a < at the beginning or end of your image tag.

Your code should look like <img src="../images/yourpic.jpg">

If either the < or > are missing, the browser will display the code on the page.

Or you have too complex of js that is confusing the spider. Run your code through a html validator.

I think i may have misled you both, it doesn't appear on the page, only the source code text when i view source, try it with your own pages... hold on .....

ha ha !!!!!!! view source on this page and look at the bottom of the text !!

No, I don't see it. It sounds to me like you've a plugin for your browser that's generating the HTML code. The way it's calling an image sounds like a way to track your browsing habits.

But it's especially strange because the "http://insight_...." doesn't appear to be a valid address.

Something is parked between your browser and the internet?

Aha, thanks guys, this terminal does have a "nielson/netrating" plug-in. I can easily check this out now by taking a 20 hour flight back to London and switching on my home computer.
Funnily enough this is true !!! i am flying this afternoon from Aus.

Catch up with you all in 2 days

What's a beetroot??


 8:19 pm on Feb 27, 2001 (gmt 0)

Yes, was wondering the same thing. beetroot? :)


 10:25 pm on Feb 27, 2001 (gmt 0)

I believe that the US term for it is simply beet, and I'd eat it without hesitation ;) hmmm, borscht...


 10:23 am on Mar 3, 2001 (gmt 0)

ok ok ok, you can have the beetroot and drink warm borscht if you like.

To put everyones mind at rest, it was the nielson browser plug in on my terminal in Australia.

so now we all know !

thanks for your help, and see you soon
