How To Stop Referral Spam In Google Analytics
I wanted to share this step-by-step tutorial because it really helped me out in getting rid of ghost and crawler spam from my website.
At first, I thought I had a lot of visitors coming to my website until I discovered they were mostly coming from Referrals that weren't even legit. I didn’t recognize any of these websites nor did I really understand what Referrals was and so I began to do some research.
In my research efforts I found that most of the spam comes through the Referrals section in Google Analytics and so I decided that I wanted to banish it from my website once and for all! :)
