Why are most of my website views from Russia?

I'm new to using Analytics, and I've been using it out of curiosity for a personal website. After looking at the audience overview, I saw that most of my hits are from Russia. Under the language description, there is spam.


Is there any way to block these kinds of hits?

Hey Dejana, 


If you're experiencing a high level of spam I would suggest you do a search for referring domains and seeing which domains are sending this spam traffic. 


Once you've identified these domains you can use what is called Filtering Domain Referrals. Google has a great article on how to do this here: 


Let me know if this solves your problem!
