How do I read the standard Analog stats that are provided to determine if google (or other) bots are a significant source of CPU consumption?
I have a static site that’s typically the first google result for my key phrase. I’m reasonably certain the vast majority of visitors arrive there by google searches.
However I also have a forum and gallery (these two have AdSense on them). I see a google bot on the forum visitor list pretty much constantly, and the google index of posts seems to stay very up-to-date. I hear people talk about their sites being ‘pounded’ by bots - how would I determine that by reading the analog reports? How can I tell the difference between ordinary traffic arriving THROUGH google, vs cycles churned BY google?
Sorry if this is a really dumb question.
