  • Resolved blackogre


    Zhengzhou, Shanghai, Bangkok – I’m getting hundreds of Last Hits an hour from just a handful of cities in China, every day for the last month or so. They don’t seem to be from all the same IP, but a it will be a few from one IP that will stay just a few seconds until moving on to the next post (completely random posts), then a few from another IP that will stay for a few seconds until moving on to the next post. This can’t be right, right? There’s got to be something wrong here. My site is all in English and I don’t blog about anything having to do with China – I know that has nothing to do with it, and I totally welcome the views if they are legit. It just seems to me that something isn’t right here, especially when the IPs stay for such a short time – literally 1-15 seconds each. Has anybody else experienced this? Thanks!

    Hi blackogre,
    I usually get a lot of traffic coming from around the world and specially from China and Russia. i don’t think that is wrong, but for precaution I use spam filters and cloudflare.

    Thanks for your response. I, too, get them from various countries, but 1 from Germany, 1 from the UK, just a few here and there. I get 100s and 100s from China, from those 3 cities, over and over, every day, for the last month and a half. My traffic has doubled, tripled, quadrupled just from China traffic alone. They never comment on anything, and only stay on posts and attachments for a few seconds – every single one of them. Something has to be up. I don’t see how I would just all of a sudden be a giant hit in China, but maybe?

    Could you please link to the spam filters you use? Or give exact names I could search? I would very much appreciate it. I love this plugin otherwise =)

    Sure, I would recommend Bad Behavior
    and also SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
    Both plugins worked great putting the spam and traffic issues under control.
    For other side, cloudflare allowed me to replace plugin cache entirely and also provides lot of extra utilities to catch and suppress undesiderable traffic and spam, including a panel control with statistics. Powerful and lovely at the same time.

    That worked for me, but I encourage you to make your own findings and see what would work for you… and tell us later! 🙂

    Best luck.

    thanks very much for your help!
