I currently use a virtual server to host my site. It runs Apache on a Sun Cobalt box and I don't have complete control over the behaviour of its server responses.

Can anyone explain the following server log entry?

66.249.64.66 - - [27/Feb/2005:16:12:11 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 302 216 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)"
66.249.64.66 - - [27/Feb/2005:16:12:12 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 66 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)"
66.249.64.66 - - [27/Feb/2005:16:12:12 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 302 206 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)"
66.249.64.66 - - [27/Feb/2005:16:12:12 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 13443 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)"

I am trying to prevent 302 redirects from occuring as I am under the impression that Google interpretes them as possible spamming!

Is the fact that I am running my site on a virtual server the reason that I get a 302 followed by the 200? I am NOT trying to fool googlebot by doing any sort of redirection.

This has only happened in the last couple of hours and I don't know if googlebot has returned to spider other pages. If it does it might happen when I am not watching - being the end of the month I won't be able to see the activity in the top 20 browser visits.
