Title: Ways to stop spam SEO traffic in Google analytics
Post by: Somesh on May 09, 2018, 04:36:00 PM
Hello guys!!

I am using Google analytics to monitor the traffic but I am not getting useful traffic on the website. As I am following all the genuine techniques to get useful traffic on my website. On the other hand, I am experiencing spam traffic that may harm website traffic, ranking and DA. Can you guys suggest me some effective ways to stop spam SEO traffic in analytics?

Yesterday, I implement this technique "Filter your Analytics traffic" and it will take time to fetch data. After analysing, I will let u know the outcome.

Here I am giving you some steps to filter spam traffic:

Turn on "Bot Filtering"
You can find this in "Admin-> View Settings". Tick the box and save.
Go to: Admin-> All Filters-> Add Filter
Give the Filter a name - Example like "Ban Country Name"
Then: ‘Select Custom Filter Type-> Click Exclude->Select Country in Filter Field-> Enter Country name in the Filter Pattern Box.

There are multiple types of bots that crawl website data as per their requirement. For e.g., There are good bots such as Google bots that crawl your website data for the lawful reason or you can say that Google has right or law to crawl your website data. In contrast to this bad bots target to hack your website data or tries to harm your website.
