My website has been seeing a very high magnitude of “verified bot” traffic, which has increased substantially over the last several days.
At this point, 98% of my web traffic of over 750,000 requests in the last 24 hours, is coming from “verified bot” traffic. It seems like either there is a mistake, these are not “good” bots, or something is wrong with my configuration that I am not aware of.
Can someone let me know if they’ve seen something similar to this, and what if anything they have done to control their bot traffic?
I do already have firewall rules enabled, rate limiter enabled, and bot fight mode enabled.
