I have been having a repeat visitor to my website that seems to visit in 4 or 5 hour spurts; entering the website repeatedly on one page then exiting every hour or so. Beyond negatively affecting my analytics, I am worried about this activity. It is not a bot either... any ideas? I will share the ip address with those who may have useful input... thanks! Eli

Hi Eli,

I'd be more than happy to investigate this for you. Are you seeing this IP in the last 100 visitors of the web tracker?

Thanks!

Hi Ell3340,

Welcome to the community!

Unfortunately we do not have a way for you to block an IP address to prevent them from visiting. This did come up in another post and another user had a suggestion, adding an html code to each of his pages to prevent the specific IP address from visiting. You can find the post here in case you'd like to give that a try.

Thank you,

Ehsan
