Hello. I am trying to determine how to examine my web traffic without all the spam/referral bots. There's a ton of stuff on Google but I cannot seem to find a method that's straightforward and simple. Does anyone have expertise in this area? Thanks!
A lot of these links on how to fix this are out there now but the fact is they only work up to a point. You still have to monitor and exclude them one by one, playing a game of whackamole. I'd really like to see Google Analytics implement a "referral spam" ID on these links and enough of these can eliminate them from everyone's lists. Ah well, one can dream.
