User Agent was:Hm, now that's interesting. I didn't recognize the IP either so I looked it up and found, what do you know, (Pacific time, making it 11pm Eastern)
et cetera, fully human including piwik script. I initially thought they didn't act on it, but turns out they changed to their IPv6 address 2a00:79e0:etcetera which resolves to Google in Switzerland. (I only found out because I cross-checked the user-agent, and this was the sole hit. Is Chrome 73 for Linux the latest release? I don't see it at all, in any variant, before mid-December.)

Dunno about your site, but on mine, “cold” human requests for the front page are exceedingly rare, because it’s just not that kind of site.

Occasionally I see a human visit from a google IP (but usually Mountain View), either exploring several pages or just one page. I think it's usually personal browsing, but can't rule out the possibility of someone doing a manual review.
does google provide ISP service in Germany?News to me, if so. And in some ways it doesn't feel like an ordinary human. I said above that I’m not a front-driven site, so requests for the front page are rare. When a human does visit, it’s typically someone who entered on an interior page and is now poking around to see what the rest of the site is all about.
An IP that is very close to the hit mentioned in the first postYeah. Without getting any more specific than we're allowed to get, the cited IP there is within /28 of the one I found in logs too.
