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.

Sudden Fall in Traffic ?Why traffic on all my hubs has decreased considerably. I have promoted them a lot, much more than earlier but no views. Not even the average views which I used to get earlier. Did anyone else noticed it?

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...

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo killed with the update? What the heck happened? Please try to figure out why the...
