Yes I believe it is a spyware program. I have 3 visits almost daily for months now. Before it was some other city I don’t remember, I emailed Shopify to be removed from their spyware and it happened for a few months and now it started again. These are companies that spy on your website to determine your best sellers and sell the info to who will buy it. It’s shameful I agree but as far as I know it is not illegal.

I’ve had a minimum of 3 per day from Council Bluffs, Iowa for months. My store uses the boundless theme.

It seems there is nothing to worry about, it appears to be Google's data centre. I checked the IP another reply had posted. I have had the same visits for a few months, very frustrating, I even blocked Iowa with an app and the hits kept coming. Shopify chat told me a month ago it was probably Google, and indeed that is what it appears to be.

I just noticed that my 2nd highest visits are from this city, and I don’t have any connections there. I’ve never even heard of it! I did a google search and found your post. Wondering if there is some Shopify connection.

I have more visits from someone/ something in Council Bluffs, IA, than any other visitor, including myself. Every day, many visits from Council Bluffs. 

What is it exactly?

Thank you,

Roland

I have done some testing and found this is caused by Shopify's new Site Speed Report feature. I have written more about it in the post here;

Make sure you contact Shopify Support and get them to change the feature if it is affecting you.

Agreed! The same thing is happening to our website with this traffic. It impossible to get great support from Shopify like the first five years of working on their platform.  

I guess I’ll pull this traffic and block from my Google Analytics account.
