Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
When a surfer comes to your site their browser will have a useragent. (internet explorer) etc. When a bot lands on your site it will also have a useragent. Google for example is googlebot and altavista is scooter. The useragent is basicaly a "calling card" saying it's me.
Every time your page is accessed the server records the visitor in your log files. The log file is a record of every useragent that has been to your site. From your log files you will be able to see what came to your site, what time, from where etc. There are software tools that are there to help decipher the logs and make them into usefull information.
Hope this is of some help.
Now only the lines in your logfile related to googlebot get analyzed.
Hope this helps.
replace the anolog.cfg file's content with:
the last two lines will show you which pages have been visited by Fredbot.
Anyone have the lines to see a graph of number of visites per day during a month?
