of the page tagging methodology over logfiles, but I've always argued
the opposite: that this is one of the main advantages of using
logfiles rather than page tagging. Of course, the spider data
shouldn't be included in the same category as ordinary visitors, but a
good program will deal with that automatically for you. But for SEO,
that data is useful, and with logfiles it's there when you need it.
Of course, there are other advantages of page tagging over logfiles.
I'm only saying that the decision is not as obvious as some people claim.
