Hi Eric - it's referral spam. In my experience I get it now & then. Sometimes it can be relentless and there are things you can do to remove it in that case from your analytics. Really, it's just an irritant because it messes up your Google analytics and it can seem like you're getting a lot more visitors. I had that recently when I had a lot more visitors than usual - and it was down to a sudden spike in this referral spam traffic!

Quite curious to that too.

Hey Eric,

Am I ever glad you asked this question. I just Google searched "what causes direct traffic of 34 visitors at 100% bounce rate" (without the quotation marks, of course) and am amazed at some of the posts in the search results... especially those in my screen print below...

You might want to run the same search, read through a few of these and see what can be done. Am off to read them myself...

Hope you find this helpful.

Here is a screenshot

Whenever I see that instant bounce rate in my stats, I assume it's usually a bot. It will be interesting to see if it happens again.

Hi Eric -

Strange ... it sounds like a bot, doesn't it?

It does. It’s really weird.

Hey Eric,

PressCable are doing a major campaign to gain new members, claim that if you put out enough press releases using the proper structure they will start doing great for local business owner's sites.

You could Google search to find out more about them, using titles like: "techniques for instant press release success" (without the quotation marks, of course) or "how to write a press release" or "press release practices that will skyrocket your PR" ... and read through the many very helpful content shared by other.

Hope you find this helpful.


I will definitely look at this. I have an education/review type site that doesn'f focus on local business. I wonder if it will also help with these...
