This might not be a bug but something is strange

Hi
One member alerted me that one thread on our britbike forum gets a whole lot of views
22K within a few days which seems odd.

The thread is just a info on our hot links forum that a bike is for sale at craigslist.
see here Feb 12 = 22K views

hot links forum is here

I do think its strange
normally a thread like this gets hundreds of views not that many thousands.
May I ask can I check something and I have recently activated cloudflare do you see anything I don't?

Thanks for your advice

Right now four hours after posting this it had 1000 more views.

Now you have 115 viewing the topic.

The timeframe has nothing to do with page views.
One hour just shows all who have visited in the last hour.

Maybe it is just a popular topic.

Are you complaining that you have to much traffic on your site?

I can't fathom how this can be considered a bug.

Ruben, the reason I put the thread here is at I just activated cloudflare and somehow i was worried that it maybe didn't match with the forum.
If you or anyone else think it have no reason to be here then feel free to delete the thread.

No issue at all.
I would think the only concern is the bandwidth consumed by visitors.
But that usually is a good thing right?

I have never implemented cloudflare but I think there is some setting to throttleback connections, but of course that means visitors get frustrated and leave.

CloudFlare will attempt to filter malicious traffic, not send a burst of traffic to a specific page...

That page likely ended up shared (Reddit, Pinterest, Facebook, etc) and is seeing a burst of traffic
