>OK, my web site learning continues...what is a "log file" and how do I "check" it ? I am referencing this question to responses regarding "how do I know if my site has been visited by robots and spiders". Thanks again for your help...I greatly appreciate it!

A log file is a file created on the web server where your web pages are stored
You can download these files and read the content with a progamme like
Analog (

Log files tell you the number of hits, who sent the visitors to your web site,
what country they come from and the number of times your robot.txt file
has been asked for by robots/spiders
