    Hey guys! I am getting some weird bot traffic from google search: Its using a 7 word phrase that doesn’t make much sense. I highly doubt hundreds of people are searching for that phrase each day. It’s almost a nonsensical query. For example, “What is the best hand powered toaster”. My page shows #1 for that query because it has some related words. The bot lands on that page and leaves without any time on page or scrolling (I track these using Google tag manager). Its become so frequent that ~30% of my traffic is now coming from this one weird query! Google Analytics shows these as different users though!! They even have different internet service providers. About 20% of the time they use Psinet in the US and NTTPC in Japan for another 20% of the time. The rest is just random providers. It’s driving me crazy and I guess its completely wrecking my user signals due to immediate bounce. Is this an attack of some sort? I am new to SEO and really confused by this. Please help! – by /hq/quantum_ai_machine – –
