    Um, there are a set number of IP address, and they are known, so no, they don't mine IP address. Just like any other website, like this one, they do watch IP addresses, so if your IP is comming from Russia and logging into a US account, they will limit it.

    Are you serious? They have been doing it for close to 10 years now. Data mining doesn't mean IP addresses. It means data mining. It could be to program for better search optimization, marketing, etc... Many reasons. But of course they keep a log of ip addresses
