See which page the bot visited – and which it didn’t

Image

Resources

See all crawled / requested resources from bots and humans. Whetherthey've requested an image, robots.txt files, or simply an URL, you'll see it in Google Analytics.

Botnames

See exactly which bots are crawling your site. You'll see all 10 different Google bots, Bing bots, etc. We even make sure that it is the bot that it claims it is by verifying their IP address against our list.

Pageviews

See how often bots are visiting your ULRs and resources and make sure to funnel them to your most valuable pages.

Google Analytics

GA is by far the best UI to monitor bots. You'll see how bots flow through your site as sessions in GA. Its powerful reporting and alert systems make it extremely handy.

Custom Dimensions

Log Hero gives you nine custom dimensions from Request Method to Botname to Hostname, so you can make sense of your logs. In GA you can correlate them with all relevant metrics.

Analyze the bot’s behavior in Google Analytics just like for human users

After a quick sign up and the integration of one of our SDKs in your source code, Log Hero will capture any page or ressource delivered by your server

Any server activity will be uploaded as a page view to Google Analytics. This way you can follow bots around as if they were humans.

And as a bonus: this way you can also see human users that block trackers (and hence are usually not tracked by Google Analytics).

You get all aspects of professional log file analysis – without messing around with Log Files

Bot detection

Analyse which bots are indexing your website. Each bot is validated in real time to prevent fake user agents from distorting results.

Device Category

Which device is used by each bot (desktop vs. mobile vs. tablet)? Find out exactly how search engines are rendering your website.

Crawl Duration

How long does the bot need to download data from your website? Is your site performant enough for frequent visits?

Sessions and User Assessment

Which sites are bots checking in one session? Is your site indexed by different bots and different data centers?

Bot Sources

Which links do the bots follow so they land your site? Identify strong and powerful links that generate bot traffic for your website.

Status Codes

Analyse the status codes of each page. Where are hidden redirects? Which page was down permanently or unresponsive?

User Agents

Analyse the user agents that each bot is using. Are you crawled by competitors using crawlers such as Screaming frog, Ryte, etc?

User Detection

See users that have turned off Google Analytics or are blocking JavaScript entirely.

How does the log Hero get your log data into GA?

1. Bot visit

Google and Bing regularly send their bots and spiders to crawl and index your website. Usually, you don’t see them in GA.

2. Add Integration

Log Hero has integrations for several servers and frameworks. They automatically catch all hits from bots.

And you don’t have to bother with the real server logs.

3. Data in GA

Log Hero then uploads the hits as page views to a new GA property. This allows you to analyze Googlebots like never before.
