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

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

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

so now we all know !
