    I’ve noticed a couple of times today, on Google Analytics, that the site    googleads.g.doubleclick.  net      in  the Top Referrals source.  When I googled that site it appears that it’s a redirect virus.   What can I do to get rid of it…..or should I not be concerned?  Does anyone know what it is, or does?

      I used to get a lot of traffic from there to my blogs but I've never been able to pin down exactly what it is. I've looked around the Web and people say various things about it; that it is actually traffic from Google ads, that it is a glitch from Google, that it's the ad program sending traffic to your site.

      I don't think I get much traffic from it anymore. So, not sure what happened or what it is.

      It's likely that it is coming from the recommended hubs at the bottom of someone's hub. Hubpages gets to try out that feature and it's new. I know I started getting traffic from that source when they added those recommended hubs above the comments.

    I think there is no need to be concerned about it. It is not any virus. It is a kind of tool integrated with Google adsense/ Google adwords. You sometimes get traffic through it and it is legal traffic, not any spam.

      That is reassuring as I have noticed them on Google real time stats.  I was concerned.
