Visitor information is incorrect

Ever since I starting using Cloudflare I've noticed a change in my visitor stats. The only visitors I receive according to my stats are myself, Cloudflare Cache, Google and an occasional Canadian. I use ATT for my isp.

However, over the past 2 days I've received phone calls resulting in 7 appointments for estimates. This is pretty standard. One of the things I always ask potential customers is how/where they found me. I had 5 of these people tell me that they found me online. I didn't ask what search engine they used.

My question is, why are the stats from Homestead so different from Cloudflare? Could this have something to do with the Cloudflare cache of the site? Cloudflare's https service is very new to me and I have no understanding about any of it. 

I also received this information from Google. The script wouldn't paste in it's entirety but it referenced realtracker.com in both.

Would this affect the stat reporting at Homestead? Could it also be the reason Google analytics said they were unable to read the site? Please reference https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/robots-txt-fetch

Thank you.
