Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
My first post!
I have a client site that for the past three days has been constantly visited by a Googlebot on 188.8.131.52 When I say constantly I mean once every 7 - 10 seconds this bot checks the robots.txt and home page and that's all.
The site works for other bots including googlebots on other IP addresses. I assume from this that the robots.txt and .htaccess are correct (or else I'd expect other googlebots to complain as well).
Has anyone else found a problem with the bot on this particular IP address?
The confusing thing is that it's only this IP address that is looping round the home page, other googlebots from different IP's (and other engines) are working fine.
As an aside, the "Son of Google", how frightening is that?
