While taking a look at Google Analytics today, I came across something strange. I entered the dates as far back as they would go until present day for one of Miklos’s sites, and a mysterious lone ranger turned up.
Neither new, nor returning? How can that…? Apparently the same has happened to others. So who is this single visitor over the course of 2 years on a site that’s had tonnes of pageviews? Is it the same visitor on every site? Is it GoogleBot Himself (but then, wouldn’t GoogleBot not track himself)?
When I checked visitor history on this blog, however, there was no Mystery Visitor. I guess GoogleBot is out. So who could it be?
I’m interested to know from other bloggers: If you date Analytics as far back as it will let you, does the same kind of result turn up?
