I have a pair of websites, a "personal" and "professional" which I recently put online.
As I'm not generating content, traffic or doing any promoting yet I've got a really good idea of who's visiting (less than 10 hits a day :| )
In reviewing my logs I found a visit to each site from a google IP (188.8.131.52) apparently using chrome on osx.
The two IPs were very close together, but not the same and the requests were 12 minutes apart. Both hits were without a referrer and only viewed the index.
I have added the sites to google webmaster tools, which I assume is the source of this.
Is their bot pretending not to be a bot to see if there's alternate content?
I suppose this could just be a curious employee, but I would have expected less time between visits and the same IP. Any idea what this might have been if not a bot?
I still don't want traffic so I'm posting A/C
