    What is index.html/register/

    I just noticed a decent number of views at this url: http://www.cineweekly.com/index.html/register/ I have no idea what the "register" part is but I have a hunch it's bot related since there is only 1 "Entry" and 49 "Exit" listed on my stats. Any ideas?

    "register" is what you've named one of your directories.
    There must be a link somewhere (from a login form?) that goes
    to this URL: http://www.cineweekly.com/index.html/register/

    The bots are crawling there from an external link most likely ... from
    a search engine. Go to the URL yourself and see what it looks like.
    I think it's a page that people should not be able to access?

    Looks like the index page for the site without formatting (which makes sense given the way the style sheet is used on the page).

    I don't know what it could be from. There are a couple of things that need access confirmed like the Twitter "Follow" button and maybe AddThis but I doubt it's those. My only login I set up is a link shortener but it's all contained in the folder: cineweekly.com/yourls/
    Is there any way in Google Analytics to see how people are getting to the register page?

    One thing I've seen is bots that will try random paths that correspond with different software packages. Basically they might be probing for weaknesses in your site.

    Or it could be a typo in a link some place.

    That's what I'm hoping but why would my page show (though without styling) at all? I'd think it would be 404ed.
