It would be nice if Google Instant Preview visits would be recorded as Google Instant. At the moment I think that previews are stored as Direct Entry.
We'll have to treat it as a smartbot and exclude the preview as a visit. There's no referrer information, the IP belongs to Google's netblock, and the user agent looks like Safari 3.1.
If the IP belongs to google netblock, does it mean it is currently excluded from being tracked (as it should be, as it is a bot)?

Note that GA also had the issue themselves:
