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.

I knew it couldn't be that good forever, but I am concerned that it's Healdove that seems to be getting hit.

The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...

Instead of being addicted to the Stats page and getting frustrated by its inefficiency, I suggest we get rid of hub scores and hubber scores and stats. Just keep us informed on a daily basis of earnings. This would free up time and resources on getting the site to work fast for all devices with...

That sound you hear is my traffic spiraling down the drain. Every time I've checked my stats this week it's gotten worse and worse. I haven't had #'s this low since I was a noob Hubber just getting started. (Me, three years ago: "Wow, 40 views in one day! I'm kicking ass!")If this keeps...

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...

I'm wondering how articles are effected when they are linked to by outside websites. I'm assuming if the other website is a good site article views should rise. Are there any negatives to having articles being linked to, especially if the site doing the linking is not a good one?As a general rule I...
