Log File Analysis Results in Shocking Discovery!


Do you analyze or view your log files?  You should.  Sometimes you will find some surprising items in it!

Here for example, is a image of the visitors from different countries.

Apparently a few people from Costa Rica have visited the site:

Country Log

Something else I found.  Years and years (and years) ago, I wrote a small “SmartPage Generator” and put up the link on dozens of sites.  However the site was down for years after that.

When I started to go through the log file, I noticed dozens and dozens of links from those other sites.

This is good for me.  Why?  Those that are looking for the SmartPage Generator are instead coming to a blog that talks about making money on the internet.  I’ve got a captive audience!

The moral of the story?  Check your logs.  Oh, and it doesn’t always hurt to buy an existing domain name.
