In the last 2 days i've started gaining a lot of traffic (around 40% of my total site traffic) from the Asia/pacific region, this traffic shows as 100% bounce rate and with an average session duration of 0 seconds.
Is this spam/bot traffic?
Most of my customers are UK and Ireland and a few US, I rarely get views from Asia normally.
Solved! Go to the solution
I want to address a few things.
It is normal for a website to receive bot traffic. The quantity of bot traffic is the problem.
I'd be happy to discuss further if you can provide some additional details.
By the end of the evening yesterday it had dropped, it was 49 views out of 195.
These figures were from the shopify dashboard, however when I checked google analytics it shows the same amount of views (195) But doesn't show any asia/pacific region on the map or the location list.
Also, no promotions anywhere except UK and Ireland!
This is an accepted solution.
Thank you for your input, I appreciate it. I completely agree, although I'm popular on Etsy, my website is fairly new so I thought it was a bit strange that I was getting so much direct traffic!
