How would you explain this? - - [10/Nov/2013:00:02:47 -0500] "POST /watch_fragments_ajax?frags=guide&v=8XuCtBgPZLA HTTP/1.1" 404 13746 "http://www.*********.com/*********.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/534+ (KHTML, like Gecko) BingPreview/1.0b"

Not enough information. Isolated hit, or part of a package? Is the referer a real page of your own, or something else?

Bing Preview definitely executes javascript, if that was part of your question. And 199.30.24-25 is its current IP. And yes, it uses webkit :)

it was an isolated hit. the referer is my own page. i don't use ajax on any of my pages.

since I don't use ajax, why is it trying to access watch_fragments_ajax?

and even more...why is it trying to make a POST request?
