Country blocking via firewall fails?


#1

Dear,

I’ve seen much traffic of Azerbaijan to my website, according to Google analytics (they are looking for weird subfolders that does not exist).

Yesterday I blocked Azerbaijan (whole country) via Cloudflare’s firewall. Today Google analytics still shows traffic of Azerbaijan.

How is this possible?

When I block my own country or my own IP, I see the blocked page.

Did they enter via your domain or IP?
Do you have more than one domain pointing to the same server?

Google Analytics is configured by Cloudflare app, so I guess it only measures traffic via my domain? Google analytics shows mydomain.eu/blabla as the pages they are visiting.

The weird thing is that Azerbaijan is not showing up in the countries list on Cloudflare’s analytics.
