How people have found the Derby photo's website.
Look at the strange things people search for before arriving at my site.
An insight into how people find a website and how much information
is logged by the server when they do.

One of the things about having my own domain name compared to using the free web space you get with your ISP is that you get web access log files.

Log files are text files which are created automatically every day by the web server, they provide details about which pages and images are being viewed by people visiting a site along with lots of other technical information.

On some days these text files are quite large.

For example on the 27th July 2001 the log file created by the server was over 3Mb and contained 14,234 lines of text!
These logs files build up in a big way, In just three months (starting 12-06-2001) the web server had created over 52Mb of these files.

The interesting thing about searching through the log files is that it shows you where people have
come from before looking at my Derby site. This includes search engine results, which means that if say someone uses the google search engine to search for matlock bath photos and they see my site listed in the matching results and they then click on the link, it logs the search criteria in my log file (see extract below).

A typical entry in the log file looks like this :

2001-09-01 16:01:41 - W3xVC28** ***.***.***.** 80 GET /derby/matlock.htm - 200 0 33823 491 250 HTTP/1.0 - Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows 98) - bath photos&hl=en&meta=cr%3DcountryUK%7CcountryGB

In the example above you can see that it records the Date, The time (GMT), The IP address of the computer they are using, logfilename, my site ip address, The page requested by the user,Various technical bits, The type of browser they are using (in this example it is MS Internet Explorer version 6.0b), The operating system of the computer they are using and finally the full address of the page they were looking at before they came to my site.

As you can see in this example they looked for the three words matlock bath photos using google and they then visited the Matlock Bath page on my site. I can then see looking in the logfile after this line that they waited for the entire page to load in and then they viewed two of the large photographs of Matlock Bath and then left my site 4 mins and 12 seconds later. (so a very quick visitor).

This shows you just how much info is being logged by web servers when you browse the web, Scary really. In my case it is very useful being able to see how visitors are arriving at my Derby pages so I can add extra info or photos to the popular pages, It also means I can see which search engines are directing people to my Derby site.


The strange things people have entered into search engines:
Have a look through and see if you recognise your own past searches, These are taken directly from my server logs (including spelling mistakes).

Each line of words below has been entered into a search engine such as google by someone on the internet and my Derby site has been listed by it, the person has then visited my Derby site.
There are some strange entries in here, Are you the person that looked for car park photos?
