Include valid Hostnames filter does not filter out all spam traffic

Hi, i implemented a Hostname inculde filter for traffic coming from these sites:

 

blysschocolate\.com|translate\.googleusercontent\.com|googleusercontent\.com|blysschocolate\.com\.googleweblight\.com

 

Checking after the weekend i did find an entry from host : "www.abid.tsco.com.pk"

Has anyone an idea how that is possible? What im doing wrong here?

Do i have to set another exclude filter for traffic that is not coming from mentioned sites?

 

much appreciated!!!

Hi,

I have a few questions for you:
1. when did you implement a filter?
2. what date range did you select when you checked the report
3. can you share screenshot from your filter config?
