Someone has called my visits totals into question.

They have asserted that some of the visits that I collect off of my webalizer reports are actually visits by crawlers or spiders as opposed to actual people visiting the site.

Do crawlers count as visits in webalizer reports?

If they are counted, about what percentage could we guess is crawlers as opposed to visitors?

Do other reports tell you how many visits are crawlers, and how many are regular people?

i wrote my own visitor log which counts all hits, including search engine robots. I think it's handy to see how often they hit your site.

Hi!

AW stats does include spiders as part of Unique Visitors for sure.

My very site which has no visitors from search engines yet, is showing 45 visitors a day.
