Question: Hello GA Support, I have just installed the GA code on my website, however, it states not having to detect the code on my website. The moderate knowledge of web dev. that I have tells me there is no error. Would you mind extending some assistance. This is my page www.meokhan.com

 

Answer: Thanks for your question. It would be up to you to assess your data and decide what is and isn't spam traffic. htaccess in most instances won't help as the majority of spam/fake data is not generated by

actual visits to your website, the hits are sent via the measurement protocol.

 

The article i linked to above is one of the most comprehensive for dealing with the fake data,

and is worth taking the time to read and follow the directions/instructions in it.
