How to exclude AlwaysOnline crawlers from Google Analytics?

#1

Hi

I’m using Google Analytics directly thru my servers. And I can see AlwaysOnline crawlers showing up on GA.

There appears to be a way to exclude that traffic thru userAgent header but I’m not able to make it work.

If I’ll use GA thru Cloudflare, will I stop seeing those crawlers on GA?

Thanks

This is really more a question about configuring filters in your Google Analytics than using the Cloudflare App.

That being said, this is something you should be able to do with guidance from Google. There are filters that I believe can be leveraged. Also, the traffic from Always Online crawls is typically pretty small.
