Discrepancies Between Our Mobile Detection Code and Google Analytics Regarding Chinese User Agents

Update:

Last two days the number of users on the site has peaked (normally around 10AM US Eastern Time) between 4,300 and 4,500.

This is the highest number of consistent concurrent users in at least 3 years.

... and the traffic continues to rise week-over-week.
# 2  
... and most of the new traffic seems to be coming from mobile.

Before stats showed about 7 to 9 percent of the site's traffic was from mobile; but today at around 9AM Eastern US, 67% of the traffic was mobile:

This is a huge change in Google search referrals and site traffic patterns.

Need to do some analysis and see what is going on, seems too "strange" to have such a dramatic change / shift.

My first indications are we are seeing an increased amount of mobile activity from China, which I suspect might be bots indexing site content using a mobile user agent, unfortunately.
# 3  
Something is not "jiv'in" with the image from mobile showing 67% of site users are from mobile.

Google analytics shows, only around 7%.

Looks like I need to get to the bottom of this.....

Here is a link to a similar discussion about the same Chinese bots, identified as "mobile devices" by our system which have been hammering the site of late:

Blocking aggressive Chinese crawlers/scrapers/bots - John Large - Technology, Hardware,Web Development, Digital Privacy & Ethics

So far, I am just sending many of these UAs to 403, but may come up with some better idea after more logging and analysis.

I am not keen on "mass blocking" but these bots are really extreme and the IP addresses are changing so much that IP address blocking will not work; so I have to block based on UA.
# 5  
After logging this detection process, it appears that our code for detecting mobile is classifying a number of Chinese user agent strings as "mobile devices" but Google Analytics is not classifying the same (Android) UAs as mobile.

I trust Google's detection algorithm much more than our quite old and outdated detection code, so I started logging all these requests, but so far, I have not had time to do the analysis.

Here is a tiny sample of this logging:

I keep alternating from 403'ing these mobile Chinese UAs or not.

I assume they are bots, but they are disguising that they are bogs by constantly changing IP addresses.

They are not interacting with the site, posting, answering trivia, etc; so it seems the probability is very high they are bots for sure.

They definitely slow the site down and do not add any value.
