Hi Jean and all,

As i'm using Common Log Format(CLF), i could not track bots/spiders information.

Here my question is,

in this case do the hit by any bot is considered as a normal user's visit ?

If yes, then i think it is not very help ful using the numbers generated out of the CLF log file. especially if my site has more number of bots/spiders hits. isn't it ?
