I’m not getting these currently so I don’t know if they all share something in common. Regardless, you can report these domains to Cloudflare using their abuse report. You should include as much information as possible in order for them to understand what is happening and take action.

How can I block to hit my website?

It’s spamming my Google Analytics but my main concern is not to overload my server with their fake traffic.

I tried making filters to bloc countries like China, Pakistan, India:

(not in {“US” “UK”})

and also block by request URI

(http.request.uri contains “bot-traffic”)

and also block referral
