Culling from my server logs, I have discovered the following referrer url:


Take note of the last but one parameter: start=560 and that the keyword pair immediately after "q=" is a genuine one in my niche.

Should I understand some bot is harvesting keyword rankings for my website? How on earth could a visitor click away all over to Page 56 of a SERP and then take the pains to visit my website with a click-thru?
