Google is the most popular search engine. Being well ranked on Google is important for many sites to get nice organic traffic.

Many sites try to serve content for Google crawler bots as fast as possible, so that increases the chances of the sites pages to rank well.

In theory it is easy to detect when the Google bot is accessing a Web page. It is usually a matter of detecting the user agent string sent with requests from the Google bot crawler.

However, there are crawlers and malicious bots that pretend to be the real Google bot faking its user agent string.

This class provides a more robust way to detect whether a request is coming from Google bot or not.

It just gets the HTTP client IP address and resolves its host name to verify if it really has one of the known Google bot domains.
