AI Bots Scraping your Content?

What is GoogleOther and why does it visit my website?


Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0.1; Nexus 5X Build/MMB29P) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/125.0.6422.175 Mobile Safari/537.36 (compatible; GoogleOther)

The User-agent with GoogleOther, from AS15169 GOOGLE, looks like it is one of those Google bots you should welcome to your site?

AS15169 GOOGLE

A Google-owned block that can source official Google traffic, but why are they not using their usual Google/bot UA?

Because this is no ordinary bot, well it is, but what happens to the pages the GoogleOther bot scrapes from your site?

AI LLM

Google is in the race to build large language modes for their AI bots and the language comes from your website. The GoogleOther bot scrapes your site for inclusion into its Bard or whatever LLM they are building next.

Block

There is no legitimate need for GoogleOther to visit your site; this is not any of the usual Google indexing bots they use to run their Google search engine.
