    Does your web host provides awstats or a similar program? If you have cpanel it comes by default.

    yes, but it just tells you Robots, it does not state any specific robot, there are different kind of robots.

    no webhost is free so not much service but i use google analytics to track pages and but it doesn't seem to see if pages are being accessed by people or robots at the moment?

    I don't use Google Analytics so I may be off here, but if it's simply a piece of Javascript that you place into your pages, the robots won't be counted (at least not properly) because the majority of robots don't execute Javascript code.

    To get the true numbers, you would need to either have access to the raw server logs or a stats program that gets it's data from them.

    ahh! i think i remember something about looking in server logs so i guess i can't check form google analytics. no worry. i was just curious and thought i could check from google analytics., it's the server logs. thank you.

    They tend to leave no fingerprints. But if you hear a lot of clanking everytime you come in your front door, chances are they're leaving out the back.

    an easy way to check the last time your page was crawled is by doing the following search on Google:

    cache:www.yourdomain.com

    It shows what robots are used, not sure if for all but I've seen the google bot show up on several site stats.
