Hi all. Today I spotted this referral in my stats: http://cart.corp.google.com/?cmd=review&product=blogger&lang=-&cat=other This is the first time I noticed it, though it seems it's been on my site four times already in a lapse of 30 days - but not before that.
I checked cart.corp.google.com on Google, but found nothing informative. Any clue? Should I worry?
Thanks in advance!

That google subdomain (cart.corp.google.com) has been showing up on some "open" server logs for the past month, but there's no other published information that I can find so far.
That first parameter ?cmd=review is always in the logs I've seen, though the product and cat values do change.
It sure looks like it could be a new utility being used by the evaluation staff, doesn't it? Even if that's what it is, I don't think you've got anything to worry about. Any site that has been top ten on any half-way competitive SERP has probably been ogled by the human SERP evaluators several times.
