I have been a Homestead customer for a decade with many accounts and many sites and am very experienced with it.
I have an important question regarding the site statistics. Many of  IP addresses of the viewers show to be the same location in far way towns.. ie. Mount Laurel, NJ, Bellview, WA but couldn't be because all my advertising is geotargeted to and my and clicks come from texas. Why is it showing those other places? Are they the headquarters of mobile device carriers?... or ??
This is very important because I am dealing with sophisticated "hackers" who are stealing many of my sales and I need to identify them.
thank you

Hello,

We wouldn't be able to determine why it is showing those visitors coming to you site from those locations. They could be a SEO company, looking at your site, or it could be a customer in that state looking at it. The websites statistics is there just to provide the basic information of who and where people are visiting the site.
