A big referral from the domain with special characters

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

The site has a domain with special characters (IDN domain). With the GA tracking you can see a view with xn-xxxxxxx.it in the right up corner.

 

Most of visits are coming from a referral: it is the same domain with special character (es. www.nomeofdomain$.it)

 

I'm losing most of the data. I don't know, for ex., if visits are coming from a search engine.

 

How could I avoid to loose these data?

 

Thanks to all

Hi Roberto,
I think you are getting referral from the site having $.it in Your GA and you wnat to remove that. If that is the case I assume that is spam referrals.

You can block spam referrals @ https://www.optimizesmart.com/geek-guide-removing-referrer-spam-google-analytics/

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hi Santosh and thanks for your reply.

In my case the domain with $.it is not a bad referral. It is the same site that I'm monitoring, but it has a different domain. For visits coming from there, In this way I'm losing data as traffic sources.

Thanks
