In following the various blogs I read, I keep coming across items discussing server logs, referers, etc. I got access to the server logs for CincomSmalltalk last night, and wrote some quick software for scanning through them. I could probably have downloaded something, but it took less time to write the Smalltalk code than to track through google, throw away the first N tools..... etc. So I got to looking at them, and realized two things:
- I'm getting more blog visitors than I thought, since I'm not currently counting the views of the RSS file.
- I also realized that BottomFeeder doesn't tag the User-Agent header in the HTTP requests it makes
