"Link Checkers Link monitors and bookmark managers "

"Link checkers and bookmark managers are run by people wanting to keep their pages and bookmarks up to date. Being visited by a link checker is good news as it means that someone has linked to you and cares that you're still alive. Link monitors regularly check your pages for changes usually because someone has selected your page as 'one to watch'. "

(pause for warm glow

"If you have access to the server log check the referrer page to try and get the URL from which you are linked. Sometimes these URLs are inside password protected parts of sites so you won't be able to view the page. "

"If you build up a list of sites that link to you these are the guys you should tell when you move (moral never move) "

"It's also quite common for the Link checker to give no indication of which URL it's coming from. Some link checkers always come from the same IP address more usually they come from the client's site. It depends on whether the site owner has purchased a copy of the link checking software or signed up to some centralized link checking service. If you get the client's IP address you can always try visiting that if they blank the referrer URL field and surfing their site. "

Some of these tools appear to imply they're extracting email addresses (e.g. emailSiphon). As such they're probably unwelcome visitors since these addresses are probably being collected for spammers.

Validators

"Validators check your web pages for HTML correctness and standards compliance. Since other people are unlikely to send a validator to your site you don't usually see much of this. Consequently the 'list' below is restricted to the on-line validators I've used myself. "

"However if you choose to validate your own site then the validation attempts will appear in your logs. The following list is thus limited to the on-line validator I use (and recommend) and a URL submission service that I use. "

Robot Identifier IP address Validator home page

W3C_Validator abyss.w3.org validator.w3.org/

WDG_Validator/ 64.29.16.182 htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/

Tooter selfpromotion.com selfpromotion.com. This is used as part of a link submission agent (trebor(at)animeigo.com)

FTP clients and download managers

"If you offer files for download then you'll start to be visited by various FTP clients. Clients like Go!Zilla and GetRight are smart in that they can resume downloads that have been interrupted. This relies on your web server supporting the necessary protocol but that's fairly standard these days. "

"If your download files are over 1Mb in size (or if your server is slow) you'll often see the same IP address make multiple partial downloads of your file (look at the file size). In the case of Clients line Go!Zilla and GetRight if these add up to the right number of bytes then chances are the download succeeded. "

Recent entries in the "the log file link this to the site hungryhippo.com " although the robot always appears to come from an IP address at backflip.com (a bookmarking service).

The META tags for this page all appear to be references "to day trading futures training and the like although" we did spot the word 'fibonacci' (our favourite . So... possibly a future search engine related to stock "trading? or maybe the Monkey and Hippo are just feeding" me a red herring? There's more.

"...And finally some fakers "

Increasingly security and privacy concerns mean that users and companies are wary about giving away information to sites they visit through the user agent and other fields that appear in server logs.

"Some browsers will allow you to select the user agent you present when visiting a site. The Opera browser does this for example to allow it's users to pretend to be either IE or Netscape when visiting web sites coded in a way that forgets there are other browsers in use. "

"Also as firewalls become more common we will see more and more user agent fields beling blocked by the firewall that will prevent this information being transmitted to the outside world. "

"Just to prove that you can never rely on the user agent here is a selection of user agent strings I've seen in my log files that tell us nothing about the software being used (although some of them speak volumes about the person driving the software). I'm omitting any IP addresses I may have to protect the identities of those concerned "
