in Iowa people have a lot of time on their hands.

Seriously, it's Shopify speed test. Here's your answer. https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-discussions/council-bluffs-visits/td-p/846963

I read that and it says most people are only getting 3 visits a day. Im getting 100 website visits. im a small business so its really messing up my analytics

if you dig into the original report  https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-discussions/council-bluffs-visits/m-p/953848#M209517 you will see others also experiencing the same figures as you. And like those people Shopify won't do anything to help you. I mean that goes back to 2020 when Shopify actually had customer support, these days all most of us get are chatbots when we reach out.

Hi !

 

I now have this issue and it's really anoying. The bot generates preview links of my different themes, even the ones I never published. Did you have the same URLs in your reports ?

Similar issue here - and these visits get counted for sites like Trusted site etc., which we end up paying for. Any idea how to restrict this?

Speaking to a shopify rep and they typed this:  upon checking my resources here. The presence of Council Bluffs, IA in the traffic reports could indicate that there is traffic coming from a data center located in Council Bluffs. This is a known behavior and is not indicative of actual visitors from that location. Technically speaking.. When you see a visit from Council Bluffs in your analytics, it doesn't necessarily mean that a person in Council Bluffs visited your site. Instead, it could mean that someone used a Google service (like Google search or Chrome's data-saving feature) to access your site, and their traffic was routed through the Council Bluffs data center.

The agent also typed: When you see traffic coming from Council Bluffs, IA in your analytics, it doesn't necessarily mean the visitors are physically located in Council Bluffs or even in Iowa. The traffic could be coming from anywhere in the United States or even globally.
