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.

@dhaliwal

you said "Most of them were from Mountain View. "

you track visits from Google from other locations?
