Weird. Surprised

Do you know where AWStats erroneously puts the hits from the search engines in your reports ? Please check if the search engines are present in the list when you click on "Referring sites" in the left menu under "Referrers: Origin".

Did you edit the lib/search_engines.pm file ?

I haven't edit search_engines.pm. I use static reports that doesnät have link to Referring sites. I assume that it is same list that i have on awstats.xxx.refererse.html page. And it is empty.

 

I don't know where awstats puts the hits from search engines.

Are the search engines (google.fi, google.com,…) in the list on awstats.xxx.refererpages.html  ?

Nope. refererpages.html  is empty.

Actually report claims (under "Connect to site from" section) that allmost all 

visit are made by direct URL (99,5%).  0,5% are from unknown origin. And this isn't true.

I use IIS and have set LogFormat=2 in config. I actually tried also configure LogFormat as "%time %host etc…" put it doesn't change anything.

According to your description of the problem, there could be a problem with your LogFormat=2. It should be valid, but there are cases where this short form of the format description does not work as expected. I suggest that you replace it by the following:

LogFormat = "%time2 %method %url %query
%logname %host %other %ua %referer %code
%bytesd"

This parameter is read when you run an update. It will have no effect on the data which are already in AWStats data base.

I have allready tried to use that specific logformat. Same results. 

I tred with LogFormat you gave. Nothing.

This is bizzar. I have 3 different sites on different machines and same thing with everyone. This have to be some configuration error.

Thank you for allowing me to look at your AWStats config file. It contains:

HostAliases="REGEX[.*]" 

This is not valid. What you wrote means that any domain name is your host. Thus all referrers are considered as belonging to you.

Try with the following line (where your_site.com must be replaced by your domain name): 

HostAliases="your_site.com www.your_site.com 127.0.0.1 localhost"

Thanks!

 My problem is that there is huge number of hostnames used on site and client can made more of them by themselves. If i miss some from HostAliases then they are not included on reports.

But thank you very much!

The log format you are using does not contain the name of the virtual host. Thus even if you forget a host name in HostAliases, the hits on this host should be included in the report. This host name will appear in the list of external referrers, but there will not be any other "error".

Now i have ~10% of records categoried as dropped ones. Like this:

Dropped record (virtual hostname 'irc.fi'
 does not match SiteDomain='www.testi.fi'
 nor HostAliases parameters):
 
2007-02-01 13:13:42 W3SVC1292283864 xxxxx
 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx GET /Public/default.aspx
 nodeid=23&culture=fi-FI&contentlan=1 80

SessionId=xxxxxx http://irc.fi/Public/?co
ntentid=2694&sitenodeid=10234 irc.fi 200
0 0 17395 408 687

www.irc.fi  isn't hostalias for our site.

I do not understand how AWStats could know the virtual domain of a hit in your log file, when the log file uses LogFormat=2 which does not include the virtual domain.

In your example, http://irc.fi/Public/… is a referrer; this is not related to the virtual domain.

I think this is now solved: In this site there ismore fields on IIS log than awstats needs. When i specified those fileds on logformat instead on using logFormat = 2 it seems to work.

 Thank you very much!
