Cloudflare shows no traffic, despite traffic through Google Analytics / me testing


#1

Hi,

My website is https://skerritt.blog
Cloudflare shows almost no traffic for the past few days:

The flatline I’ve received 3 - 6 requests per day from jan 9th to today, I know that people visited my blog through google analytics and I’ve checked out my website many times in private browsing mode.

My website served 8000 requests on jan 8th. My DNS is still set to Cloudflare, and it looks like it all works. Is the analytics anything I should be worried about? I’ve purged cache, but the analytics seem to have died.

Many thanks for your help! :slight_smile:

Is that the Analytics that goes along with the DNS settings page that tells you to use the Beth & rocky name servers? There’s always the slight chance you’re logged into the wrong Cloudflare account for that domain.

Can you post a screenshot of your DNS settings? Redact IP addresses if necessary. My assumption is your record is not proxied but points to another service which is also using Cloudflare. If that is the case Cloudflare cant record your traffic (except for DNS queries).

My domain registrar

Many thanks for your help! PS: I can only post 1 image at a time, sorry!

Cloudflare

Precisely my assumption. The naked domain is not proxied and the www host is apparently not recognised/configured by/on ghost.io. You wont be able to use analytics with this service.

Just to double check - this isn’t something I can fix, but it’s just the analytics right? There’s nothing else wrong? :grin::sparkles:

Not as far as I know. The issue here is the CNAME, respectively the IP addresses, you are pointing to is on Cloudflare as well, which is the reason why you cant proxy your site and because of that analytics wont work.
