Why would someone at Google search for my site?

I was just reviewing the analytics on a relatively new web site (about 2 months old). Organic search traffic is only at about 25 visits per day. Today someone on a Google server in Sunnyvale searched for the name of my site without the TLD and visited 5 pages in 2 minutes. Any ideas of what this could mean? Good? Bad? Maybe some automated system and not a person at all?

Or quite possibly someone was using their iPhone using a Google IP. I know when I access my site with my iPhone it comes up as a Google IP.

Google employees are humans like us and they can search for anything that they are interested in. You never know what people are interested in. I have had people searching for my name in China and I wonder why.
