ZABA alerts

I have a  ZABA alert set up everytime someone visits my page on ZABAsearch and someone has been checking it on the regular--I get email notifications every single day!

 

The question I have is, it always says that particular someone is from Mountain View, CA. I think I read on here that someone who uses AOL will show up as being from Mountain View, CA on trackers. Is that the case? I have a good idea who it is and know they don't live there!

A lot of those main searches show up from the Silicon Valley since that is where a lot of the offices are housed. Google and Yahoo are there as well. AOL is on Ellis street in Mountain View and since it acts as a proxy it would be conceivable that all IP addresses with AOL would be traced back to Mountain View...

 Most hits from the Google bot are from Mountain View, CA.

Also, keep in mind that ZABA and Google alerts work the same way: They alert you when your (whatever you have set up to be alerted) is INDEXED by their bot. So, if Google "spiders" a page (for example, myspace) and they find YourUserNameHere on that MySpace page, they will Index it- and you will get an alert notification. It doesnt necessarily mean someone searched for you.
