Since yesterday I get a lot of scripts from India accessing my site skewing my Analytics data cuz I wanna see how many real people i got, not bots.
So i tried putting WAF Firewall rule, country equals India block - but it does nothing, also tried managed challenge, same thing, numbers from India are still going up in Google Analytics?
Doesn’t make much sense…
I know Cloudflare sees those Ip’s cuz I can see them in Activity last 24hr tab under firewall rules but it obviously doesn’t block them…
I don’t see any now. I’m guessing they didn’t use ordinary web browsers but some sort of specialised software that managed to get through. I have no ide why anyone would do it either.
Ok, I’ll keep block for a day or two and see if it happens again.
Update - I see one from India now in Google Analytics
Is it possible that the India traffic is going direct to the IP address of your web server rather than them doing a DNS lookup and going via Cloudflare? If they are going direct to the web server, then that would be why you are seeing them turn up in GA.
