Are you filtering out the robots? The Aeiveos web site
got to the point where the majority of the traffic was
robots scanning the site. After a while I had to crack
down on them. I've got some scripts that now process
the log files into "regular traffic" and "robot traffic"
so I can differentiate. If you know perl and are interested
in taking a look at them send me a note.

I was always disappointed that much of the traffic for
the Aeiveos site turned out to be for people looking
up information on melatonin and DHEA. It made the
maintenance of the scientific pages a less than rewarding
