    For some reason, i suddenly saw this stat in my tracker, it keep increasing non stop. And it shows m.facebook only and no other source, tried using google analytics as well but couldn't find where is the source coming from other than knowing its m.facebook :eek: is someone going ddos me or something by sending so much facebook traffic ? :eek::eek: suddenly have a bad feeling about this :eek::eek:

    traffic bot probably with custom referrer (m.facebook.com in this case). Also enable Cloudflare "Under Attack" option.

    Honestly i don't know. Maybe someone is trying to send you as much as fake traffic as possible so Search engines will detect it & won't rank your site etc... idk..

    On my account, Google analytics does not show the actual facebook Page/profile link from where the traffic is coming. It only shows m.facebook or facebook. So maybe it is not fake traffic, it is real traffic - someone shared your link and you're getting real visitors.

    They could have stolen your code on your website and forget to strip out the statistics. That looks like "HiStats".

    Its just 40 visit, i get around 200 such visits,check referer in analytics and you will find the long url or kw for sure. I use to get traffic faked to be populated for huff post and examiner.
