Custom google tracking id

Is there a way to customize the Google tracking code to end in '2' vs 1 which seems to be allowing spam bots to corrupt my client's analytics data? I've tried putting in various filters and regex but it is time consuming to have to do for all of my clients.  I noticed that some websites have the number 2 at the end of their UA string but I wasn't sure how to set that up.

Hi Stephanie,

There is no way to change the UA-ID. In order to have an ID ending in -2 you need to set up a new property.
