A page in my domain is getting sudden spike in direct traffic. All of them are from Moscow, new users, and have 100% bounce rate. I suspect they are spambots:
I have implemented actions from How to Identify Unnatural Spikes of Direct Traffic in Google Analytics, activated Cloudflare's Bot Fight Mode as well as improved the security level:
Still, I don't know their motivation behind this. Some of my questions:
- Why do they spam by directly access it? Because that leaves no info about them beside the spike. At least a referral traffic contains the domains they want to promote.
- Why do they access only a particular page? Why not the homepage? And how do they know that page?
