I'm facing a weird situation where my 10 WordPress websites are getting hits for non-existent pages. Mostly those pages which we never created or had in our websites. I searched about it and found Non-existent child page URLs redirects to the image attachment URL instead of throwing 404 post.
This is something I also saw on my GA. But the difference here is that. I have links being directed without the domain name for example if my site name is example.com then I'm getting links like example.com/i-am-not-an-actual-page-post. There is no domain name associated with any of that referral spam traffic. But as the traffic increases it kills my VPS and put us in a drastic situation. This is happening with all of our sites. The IP's of each request is also completely random as I see in GA too. And as I told there is no domain with any request. Just mymainwebsite.com/non-existent-page-requested/ or example.com/the-eyes-ccdvxis/check-recipient-crossword-clue-2d0c09&from=https://www.google.com/ Links like these.
Has any one else experienced anything like this?
