AWstats provided by Cpanel



Can anyone give me any info on the AWstats application provided in Cpanel.

In particular I am wanting to understand the Robot/spiders visitor category.

Is this information reliable?...

It displays time of last visits and number of hits , but is that hits over the entire age of my hosting  or only the duration of the reporting period?

In one report I'm seeing ~850 hits from 1 IP address !!! I infested with Bots or am i interpreting this data incorrectly?


Hey @silentbob

As you probably know, search engines use bots to index websites on the Internet. Those Robot/spiders (generally from search engines crawling your site) visits to your website are recorded and shown in this category.


There's a few tutorials out on search engine results to help better explain the results reported, but perhaps the main Glossary from AWStats can help explain the basics.

When in Awstats, what is the difference between a websites number of visits and unique visitors?

One visitor can have multiple visits. Especially, if you run a store, the visitors can come more than one time to look at the item before buying. It is still one visitor.
