In my list of referrers to my site these domains seem to be fake: eyes-on-you.ga, spin2016.cf, fashionindeed.ml, executehosting.com, globalscam.ga. What are they doing there and where did they come from?

Hi Chuck,

You are right all of these are fake referrals intended to spam you Analytics. Most probably freedom.com banned those sites that is why you are seeing the not found page. To keep away these and other spammers from your Analytics data you should create some filters.
