Many guests logged on

I have noted that the number of guests have been quite high latley, usually higher than the number of registered users. Are we getting many new members?

Until I switched servers recently, other than the 'stats' hacks I had installed for a while on the last vB version, I really don't know what the over all visitors numbers were. Heck, I had server logs turned off in Apache for almost 2 years - got tired of continually analyzing them - I did nothing with the data. I remember sorta benchmarking 1500 different visitors a day to the site as a whole.

I *could* go back to the old system by pulling an old database copy out and bringing up the old forums on my computer here. But I'm too lazy. So - I don't have anythng long term to compare what's happening now to. I do know we're getting tons of google hits.

We get a lot of new 'members' (registered users), but few opt for attachments. But not complaining - beats a blank as we said in high school. Few stay around long - they get what they want and go on.

vB does have a stats function now - it's in the administrator's panel. It's real clumsy but better than nothing. But again - it's short term data because its only been present since the version 3 release - what, 6 weeks ago? Hopefully a decent 'stats' hack will surface.

A lot fewer spiders now. Over July 4th they practically attacked the site. There were sometimes as many as 80 spiders going at it at about the same time.

Spiders? Basically they crawl all over the internet (Search it) and return the information to the search engine indexes. That data is then used when we access the search engines.

Attached are three important indicators. The spider attack the first part of the month skew the results but I'd be guessing as to how much. These are site-wide, not just the forums.

More on Spiders

What is Google Spider Crawl Numbers. I noticed that there is a guest or guest(s) showing activity from the same ISP. How does that work. One showed he/she was reporting a post. It doesn't appear here. 2 are in italics and 3 are bold. They're on line at the same time? Duh!Wasssup?:)

I did, Carol. Still don't get it. How can three different people on line at the same time have the same ISP? :bonk: See what happens when you don't attand an institution of higher learning? :rolleyes:

Spiders

It gets kinda weird. One factor is if they are a guest and how the software tracks guests. Another factor is the cookie setting of 20 minutes. As a guest, it gets a 'session hash'. The session hash can change. The software looks at IPs, not the resolved router name. Each router has a number of IPs. So a Google spider can have multiple 'hits' from different IPs but they resolve to the same router beacause they're part of the block of assigned.

Different session hashes - each is good for 20 minutes - different IP but same IP block - different entries on the list.

Disclaimer: I'm guessing at some of this.

I just disabled Resolve IPs in Who's Online. Let's see what happens.

Re: Spiders

Ahhhh! There is a different ISP at the very end of what they are looking at, so you can see the "real" ISP. Just noticed that or I wouldn't have posted. :)
