    Hello, im a 10 year veteran in web design and im having an argument with someone about the fact that modern robots that trawl the internet can trigger javascript to make it look like they are human. He says they cant. They have a vested interest because they are a directory service that i pay for. they are saying 750 hits and im showing 250 hits with my php based counter that is on each page. essentially its not possible for one of my pages to be visited without the php script logging it into a database. Whilst there are other reasons, such as they use reffering links and redirects, the argument currantly stands that robots can trigger javascript and appear like humans, triggering their counter, but not following through to my site.

    As web masters on a web master forum, can anyone shed any light? Any good articles or papers or sites detailing robots triggering javascript?

    Any help appreciaited.

    i'll be nervously refreshing this topic for the next few hours, but i probably wont be here next month. i actually last accessed black hat 509 days ago!!!
    hopefully this is the right section, im a bit messed up at the moment and finding it hard to think i just wish someone could say HEY - This is how it is!!!

    many thanks in advance.
