Website offline, but GA still recording traffic
Anyone experience this?
My website is offline (http://2457merida.com/) but GA is still recording traffic.
I can understand referral spam, but 22 sessions are being report as "google/organic".
I don't necessarily care about this particular website, but I am curious if the issue also affects my other websites.
Re: Website offline, but GA still recording traffic
Check your hostnames report to see if the traffic is occurring on your site or or somewhere else (cache, stolen content, archive.org, etc.).
Audience>>Technology>>Network - then change the primary dimension to hostname.
With the measurement protocol it's possible to push in any source, even organic so it could also be spam.
