Getting hits from a South African IP posing as the big G. So far it seems benign. But why would the same webpage be 4 different byte sizes?

if that were my site, i'd say that they are different sizes due to a few parts of the page being dynamicly generated ;)

You probably don't want to post full IP addresses here.

When I read the subject I though "Hey, that's me!". I often impose as Googlebot, just to check if a site delivers different content. Usually when I found unexplicable good ranking results on otherwise plain vanilla pages. I see nothing wrong in it, especially since the real clever cloakers do it based on the IP and not on the user agent.
