    Hi

    I have an online shop and every now and then I check for customers online. A couple of times I've come across about 80 entries with the same IP address 'crawling' my shop and changing page every 4 seconds, for about 20 minutes... Do you guys have any idea what it could be? Spam bots? IP addresses are from the US most of the time (my shop is non-english). It kinda looks like this:

    n/a Invité n/a n/a 92.150.241.162 2 oct. 2012 07:54:22 2 oct. 2012 08:24:39 Page XYZ
    n/a Invité n/a n/a 92.150.241.162 2 oct. 2012 07:54:22 2 oct. 2012 08:24:35 Page XYX
    n/a Invité n/a n/a 92.150.241.162 2 oct. 2012 07:54:22 2 oct. 2012 08:24:31 Page XYE
    n/a Invité n/a n/a 92.150.241.162 2 oct. 2012 07:54:22 2 oct. 2012 08:24:27 Page XYA
    n/a Invité n/a n/a 92.150.241.162 2 oct. 2012 07:54:22 2 oct. 2012 08:24:23 Page XYG

    (random IP address)

    Any help would be appreciated.. I'm just wondering if I should worry about it or just ignore.

    That IP is in Paris France not the US.

    Yes, as I said.. I put a random IP address as an example. Most of the time it is US IPs

    It could be many things, bots looking for forms where to put their spam comment, bots looking for emails address, website scanner for bugs if you using any known platform, ...
