    Googlebot in Google Analytics?

    I was just looking through my analytics stats and I noticed that it is showing "Googlebot" in the browser stats page.

    I've never seen that before, do you guys see that in your analytics? Is that really googlebot? How would it register as a visit in analytics if it doesn't run the java script?

    I haven't seen it in analytics. May be somebody is spoofing browser agent?

    I do see it in my Analytics.

    There's no way to tell from the limited data available in Analytics. You would need your raw Apache logs or some other tool which would show you the IP address used for each visit.

    Googlebot does have some JavaScript capabilities.

    I am more inclined to believe that these are people up to no good who are masquerading as Googlebot.
