HI Everyone, I am very new to everything website so please bear with me.
Our site has been hit by bots monthly for 3 months 1 or 2 days a month. Page views have been around 1800-3000 views in one day with 0 time on page and 0 across all stats and 100% bounce rate and they are all listed on analytics as unassigned traffic.
When looking at the demographic they are all random countries but across about 40-60 users. So geo-blocking is not an option but clearly, the attacks are linked in some way given that they are hit on the same day.
I have wordfence set up but live tracking is not helpful given that I don’t know when they will hit.
My host does not have access to the server logs to investigate this for me ( I am considering switching hosts!)
Is there anything I can do to find out where these hits are coming from and how to prevent them?
I have been crawling the internet and cannot make head or tail of what to do about it.
I would appreciate advise on what I should do as I am worried it will affect my site given I am trying to grow it this year. Thanks
