  • how to tell if Mr. googlebot is at your site

    I installed Filburts hack- to remove session ids. Just wondering how everyone can tell when googlebot is on their site???

    I turned on resolve IP's, but now I'm not sure where to go to look for Mr. googlebot.

    Any ideas?

    Googlebot's hostname will be something like or something like that. You'll be able to tell. It has 'googlebot' in it somewhere.

            Any using Googlestats that can help me figure out how to add their tracking code to the forum pages ?

            I tried putting it in the footer in the forum templetes, didn't work.

            I am familar with Googlestats as I use it on another website of mine (without a forum)

            Just the forum part is what I am having trouble with tracking

              Put that in your phpinclude template.

                Easiest way to tell is that you'll have 60 guests on

                    By phpinclude template, are you referring to what I already did ?

                    Which is on ever page of the forum, but it doesn't work.

                    I am working on editing forum/admin/config file till I find a better solution..

                    Scott, I always have 60 guests on

                    I want to see exactly how far google goes.
                    Last month googlestats showed me it went through one of our site, 50K pages. And that site has no forum.
                    Googlestats is a great little tool. Just got me stumped on the vbb pages...
