Error 1015 You are being rate limited

I have enabled the rate limiting for my site and got the error 1015 you are being rate limited on the second page it hit.

I have it set to 15 requests per 10 seconds, Block for 1 hour. I had a user yesterday say the same thing, they hit the site fine, then clicked to go to a sub page and got blocked.

I do not see any threats that were blocked in my dashboard either.

I searched other topics, but none had an explanation or solution. What can i do?

Have you counted how many requests are being made for each of those pages? Does not seem out of whack to me, but check out this thread, What does "Total Requests" mean

Thank you Cloonan, I was assuming it was only counting the initial request of the site and not each separate file. Thank you!
