    Hi BHW Forum,
    I don't know if im in the right topic.
    But I have a question that interest me.
    I looked today into my Google Analytics tool and found out that
    46 visititors come with the provider google inc. Are they google employee?
    Do they rank my website contextual?
    Thanks for the answers

    It is just the Google bot looking at your site to see if it can work out what it is about and where to rank it.

    To check on changes, content, different pages. That's what a spider bot is made for.

    Did you update the site a lot? Perhaps you kept it sniffing around your site.

    I am not sure if this is user agent or actual Google.
    If it is Google it seems a bit much for one day, if it is not then well.... See for yourself on how to respond.
    Please note it is okay to block countries like the Ukraine and others you are not targeting. Ukraine, despite the good people living there, is kind of a hackers resort.

    I will say that that actual employees use a different IP then the bots but they too will not use VPNs...
