I check for visitors to may HubPages by going to Google Analytics. Under RealTime , Overview today I'm seeing a site address that isn't one of my Hubs. When I pasted the address to see who the site belonged to I was shocked to see that it is a porn site. Has anyone else seen this on their analytics page today? I wrote to the team to tell them about this and am hoping there is something they can do about getting it off my Google Analytics page. Has anyone else seen this?
The team basically has no control over Google Analytics. There is a way to block unwanted sites from GA, but I can't remember what it is. Maybe one of our gurus can help you with that. Good luck.
I think that's ghost referral spam. They just send "traffic" to a site to get the owner to click the link so they can get traffic. You can filter them from your stats.
Actually, they don't send traffic to your site, they just send their spam to GA. I don't think it has any effect on your site. Here's more info: http://www.ohow.co/what-is-referrer-spa … -it-guide/
You can create a filter for "campaign source" if you are getting plagued by a particular referral spam; the same thing allows you to block from individual countries, ie I have all hits from Russia blocked from GA
If you are getting spam to your homepage, but no details about where it is from, I think this is called "ghost spam". You can also set a filter to only record hits to your websites ie NAME.hubpages.com, as spam is hitting GA not your websites

So does anybody here know an easy way to exclude all of my internal traffic from both my work comp and home comp for Google Analytics. Filters seem to be geared more towards owned websites and not so much a site like Hubpages. It's really not a user friendly system. I have noticed that basically...
