I have always had these extra locations but didn't pay attention to them until recently.  There is suddenly pageviews happening on those locations for my same blog and I am not sure why?  I want to remove them but I don't want to mess anything up by doing it wrong.  Can anyone walk me through this?  I am very computer illiterate...FYI

Hi, this is very likely Google Analytics spam.

Either ignore it or use filters to remove that spam going forward.
