    Exclamation Googlebot hits not counting?

    I've had Optik Point up for one day as of this hour, and have recieved over 200+ hits from googlebot, however, they are not successful hits and only showing the number of hits but not a + next to that number.

    Also, the bot is visiting almost every 5-10 minutes and sits for 10 minutes, so it must be doing something right?

    Am I missing something here?

    Thanks!

    P.S the SEO Friendly option is activated on the board.

    What are you using to "see" the hits?

    What do you mean by "they are not successful hits"?

    In AWSTATS of your cPanel or the software it's self. Check the below.

    Googlebot Hits: 399 Files Size: 814.99 KB Date: 03 Jul 2006 - 06:24

    * Robots shown here gave hits or traffic "not viewed" by visitors, so they are not included in other charts. Numbers after + are successful hits on "robots.txt" files
    By viewing the below text of what the stats above it are listing are basically saying that the Googlebot is not making successful hits to the robots.txt file, which I am not understanding at all as to why, because I have ran a previous site before this which was a directory, and it had successful hits from the googlebot.

    Ok looks like it's working now, 731+1 on Googlebot from the AWSTATS, must have been the meta I was previously using.

    Thanks guys.
