Cloudflare stats don't match google analytics stats

Hi!

On the cloudflare dashboard, it says 701 unique visitors in the last 24 hours for my site.

On google analytics, it tells me 47 visitors.

Which one is right?

Why is there such a huge difference between these 2 numbers?

Thanks!

Both are valid, they just measure different metrics. Cloudflare gives a raw input on how many times your site was hit whereas google analytics counts how many visitors actually executed their javascript.
Crawlers, scrapers, search engine bots, etc, certainly won’t execute it. Simultaneously people with anti trackers and other privacy measures are most likely hidden from google analytics.
