Default Unusual Spike in Web Traffic

Hi Eric,
I have noticed a spike in website traffic. It is coming from San Jose and is classified as unique in Google Analytics. All traffic seems to be going to my store and landing to bunch of products. Have you seen this behavior before?

Hi Marko,

I really couldn't say what that is. Sorry!

I've seen it before, from San Jose too. It's really annoying. You can block the IP address from crawling your site. There's many security plugins out there that can block out a blacklist of known malicious ip addresses and add your own that you find.

I noticed I was getting tons of "unique" clicks from San Jose as well. How did I stop this from being reported? and what is it? A Google Bot?

I sometimes see this too. Yes, it could be a googlebot, but that's all I know. If your site is a Wordpress site there may be plugins that will help you identify the IP address so that you can decided whether to leave it be or block it.

Or you can use your robots.txt to specify which bots to allow. See
