    I checked my logs a few minutes ago and saw this seemingly new G-bot:

    Mediapartners-Google/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)

    Anybody have some background on this one?

    Probably something to verify whether your Adwords URLs work.

    I don't have any AdWords...

    It showed up on one of my c*ntent sites that I put Fastclick on. So maybe it has something to do with them?

    If you are showing Google ads through FastClick then that is it. When someone loads your page Google instantly spiders it to serve relevant ads. All done in real-time, pretty impressive technology.

    I removed fastclick 468X60 banners from my site because of these google ads - they are too good at targetting and while my sites were content sites - I also sell stuff from the pages and they were promoting my competitors for the same exact products. I stick to the popunders now - no google ads
