I managed to find a way to filter out these referrals after I posted this, 24 referrals in just one week!
looks like referral spam, the site redirects to a shopping site called ali express. there's nothing to be done about it but it is harmless to your account.
Apparently but it gives one a false reading in GA - making it appear as if you have more traffic than it seems. I found a great article and a tutorial on how to filter out the referral spam.
I find alibaba.com popping up whenever I load photobucket site nowadays. Even after closing photobucket, it remains there and I have to close it also to disappear.
