    Visitor's IP address


    Here I come with another question.

    Is there any way by which I can know visitor's IP address in Analytics. If so, is there any way to keep track on particular IP, like when it is visiting my website, etc.

    You can assign a unique User-ID in GA and track you users that way, but be warned this brings up a privacy issue. It is a real pita to do so, so it may not be worth the trouble.

    Alternatively, you can always check your server logs. Your server logs by default track this information. Simply examine your server logs and sort by IP. It is all there. No privacy issue to deal with either, as it doesn't involve a third party collecting the information and then providing you with it.

    hi, no you cannot do this, it breaks many privacy laws, and you cannot using tracking cookies unless your users consent.

    If you want to track a particular IP, it does not make any sense according to me. Are you going to do any activity for those regularly visiting users? I don't think this is the scenario. Why don't you focus on rest of the user engagement activities instead?

    I just want to check whether any malicious activity is being performed by someone to increase my website's overall Bounce Rate. Bounce Rate has increased over few days to a larger scale.
