I have a php script which tracks users coming from search engines. It was working perfect, recently it is showing me 125K+ searches daily. This website is fairly new and I am not expecting that huge traffic from search engines within weeks of launch! (I know I am not that much lucky!).
I debugged this issue and emailed the global variables to myself. In less than 30 seconds I received over 100 emails. I am copying few snippets here.
[HTTP_USER_AGENT] => Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
[HTTP_REFERER] => http:/
[REMOTE_ADDR] => 188.8.131.52
From referral url it appears some one is searching from Google but i guess this is the Google robot. I can't understand If it is Google robot then why is it not showing in user agent?
Any clue whats cooking?
