Searched around for raterhub and it looks like its affiliated with Google? Is this their rating operation ?
The visit landed on a single internal page that doesn't rank for any keywords and they didn't stay for long or browse any other pages. Luckily, I think this is one of my best pages on the site so I hope they were satisfied with the 'quality' :/
Also worth mentioning, this site was submitted to the Penguin feedback form. Could that have anything to do with it ?
If you've submitted your site in the last few weeks, can you check your logs for visits from that domain ?

That link is 7+ years old :)
If you try to visit raterhub directly you receive the following message on an accounts.google page:

This and other indications suggest It's most likely a company working for Google, imo. google has confirmed outsourcing the final quality control step, the human evaluation, to keep the indexes free of "sites that slip through".
