Spam Organic Traffic Showing in Google Analytics

by nirmalya 5 replies
Hi,

I was seeing the Google Analytics for one of of my website.

There was a abnormal increase of traffic from 15th May,2015. Further testing revealed that abnormal traffic is coming from Organic visits with a new set of keywords (new set of keywords are mainly used for porn site searches).

The landing page urls for the keywords are also abnormal like following:
blog/Hairy28.html
blog/Sleep22.html

etc.

which are returning to 404 page error as no urls like the above are there.

The website is for reality dealers.

Website : Acredeals.com

What are the measures I can take to overcome this type of problems?

Please suggest ASAP.


Best Regards,

Nirmalya Ghosh

    Check your link profile using Google's Webmasters Tool that any unusual kind of link is appearing towards your site or not. If yes then disavow them as soon as possible. You can also any paid link management services to identify and remove bad links such as 'Link Detox' or 'Link Research Tools'. Some may also suggest you to add javascript or php code to add your site to block the traffic but its totally your decision.

        I am sorry but I don't get it landing pages will always start with your urls as they are your site pages. Did you mean that they are direct links??

    I've been noticing the same kind of stuff lately. It seams Analytics is having problems as I notice it coming from weird Google searches and referral URLs. I know my links aren't listed on any of the referral pages, and many are like free-share-buttons.com or adult sites..It's strange and hopefully Google gets it under control soon!

    I got the same situation too. Filter these domains on your analytics account and ban them from accessing your website.
