Visits from Google, but not the googlebot herculano msg:4429757 12:03 am on Mar 16, 2012 (gmt 0) Hi guys, not sure if this means anything, I've gotten a bunch of visits from google from their office or data center. when I do an ip lookup I see a bunch of mountain view google inc atlanta google inc minneapolis google inc but they are not googlebot. is this resulting from a manual review of the site or something else?

It could be a manual review of your site. It could be one of the human quality raters, rating set of search results (that's not the same as a manual review at all). It could even be someone checking up on a site that links to you. There's just no way to know for certain. martinacastro msg:4431025 9:27 pm on Mar 19, 2012 (gmt 0)

@dhaliwal you said "Most of them were from Mountain View. " you track visits from Google from other locations?
