Abstract: This paper describes part of a web usage mining study executed on log files obtained from a Belgian e-commerce company. From these log files, it can be observed that numerous web robots are active on the site. Most of these robots show a crawling behavior that is radically different from the browsing behavior of human visitors. Because the owners of the e-shop desire information about the paths that human visitors follow through the site, it is of crucial importance to remove these robotic visits from the log files.
