trouble with pages crawled by Googlebot

I am having trouble with the code under Pages Crawled by Googlebot. The section does show up in my main awstats.MySite.html but no pagehits are shown. I searched through my log which contains over 100 hits from googlebot. What are my options to search for the error? Does AWstats provide any log files?

I am not aware of any problem with the Googlebot version of that extra section.

Do not forget that activating the extra section does not change the data that are already in your AWStats database files. The extra section will be applied to the data in your log file that have not yet been read by AWStats, when you run the next update of the AWStats database.

We recommend that you work with an empty DirData  directory when testing a new extra section. If necessary, temporarily move all files from the DirData  directory to another directory and then update the stats.

Hi, and thank you for your answer.

I did work with an empty DirData.

This is an example of the log from IIS:

2009-04-22 14:24:59 GET /xxx.asp – HTTP/1.1 Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+Googlebot/2.1;++ – 200 29095

Will it work with the ExtrasSection?

I will have to double check that IIS is setup with the right log format and check my AWstats config again. I will get back in a day or two.

You are right. There is a compatibility problem with the format of the user agent used by IIS. The following version should be compatible with both IIS and Apache styles:


I will edit the page with the code example. Thank you for pointing this out.
