Cloudflare Web Traffic numbers are massively different to GA numbers


#1

I would like to know why my United States web traffic report has 4 times more requests than my own country of UK? In Google Analytics my UK web traffic is much larger then USA. My other websites on CloudFlare are not experiencing this behaviour and I cant see any reason for this from other CloudFlare metrics. Please HELP!

Thanks
Pete

I think that’s because Cloudflare counts Google Crawling as users. Google Analytics excludes Googlebot and people who have JS disabled or disable tracking (these could be browsers or CLI tools).

Then someone or something is doing requests from the USA, can’t help you there.
