One scouring around recently ... AdsBot ( Google ).
Google AdsBot focuses on landing page user experience through landing page quality check.

It uses a combination of automated and human evaluation to determine landing page experience on a site.

A site’s ads may show less often (or not at all) if they point to websites that offer a poor user experience.

Google AdsBot can contribute to heavy traffic and site down time.




Well ... that explains it ... geared to a commercial site.

Might find the odd bottle of snake oil elsewhere on this site but ... on the forum ?

Lost it's way and found itself on this country lane ?

Perhaps someone should redirect it back to the motorway ?

( Oh , must remember ... CUK ... anyone about ... site fully compliant with GDPR ? ... it's the Law you know !

Now month EIGHT since I first asked ! Just trying to protect YOUR posteriors ... and possibly your salaries !

Upto you to decide which of those two is more important ! That nasty Beast ... UC ... has already visited some of your manors ! )

Said bot is actually really a topic in BENEFITS , FINANCES AND FUNDING as I type.

Threatened with the sack , and reading up on Universal Credit , perhaps ?

That thread's a long read , squire !
