Unique traffic

#1

I have a new website which is not yet known to people , my unique visitors on Cloudflare analytic is strange.

I wonder if those visitors are ghost.

Can I rely on the Cloudflare figures?

Cloudflare analytics will ID visitors based on IP address, not by inserting JavaScript code as done by Google Anlytics or Facebook Pixel, for example. So the figures you see will necessarily diverge from other analytics solutions.

Unique visitors by IP address should therefore include visits by bots. Please understand that the moment you register a domain name, it starts receiving visits by bots of all kinds, both malicious and the so called “good bots”.

Consider Coudflare Analytics as the “big picture”, but do implement other analytics solution to log and analyse user behavior.
