im getting lots of these across a whole bunch of apache log files:
IP Address: 126.96.36.199
User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
After some googling it seems this is part of some live.com’s search engine quality checking ? basically spoofing a real browser getting referred to my site by some very very random keywords (that do not exist anywhere on my site)
knows what this could be doing to things like adwords or google
So I just blocked them:
who wants to be found on ms search engines anyways.
