Possible Scam

Under the "Some of your visitors can't find what they are looking for" section, I am showing the following searches:  (Sorry for the mess.  I don't know how to do a screen shot from a personal computer)

Summary 37
body onpageshow confirm 1 4
details open ontoggle confirm 1 4
marquee loop 1 width 0 onfinish prompt 1 4
link details open ontoggle confirm 1 2
body body onpageshow confirm 1 2
meta details open ontoggle confirm 1 2
title details open ontoggle confirm 1 2
link body onpageshow confirm 1 2
body details open ontoggle confirm 1 2
csi 16 107e2 fire ant bait 2 (this is the only logistic search for my site)
title body onpageshow confirm 1 2
meta body onpageshow confirm 1 2

 

I don't know if this is something that I need to be pro-active about (or how to do it).  Or if this is just someone phishing unsuccessfully.  

 

Thanks ahead of time for any help or suggestions.  I don't want this to turn into a problem.

Thank you for sharing those search results with us to review. This type of activity is totally normal and nothing to be worried about. These search results are most likely created by bot traffic that is crawling the website. This can't be stopped and does no harm to the store at this stage. 

The only time you need to be worried about bot traffic is when your store is being hit with so many bots that it overloads the servers, causing the store to crash or timeout. This is a very rare and very targeted attack and you would know (as would our security team) if that was the case.

Hi Shay,

Can the bot traffic can be solved? We cant see the accurate report so stopping the bot traffic will be helpful. Please let me know if any solutions.

Thanks,
