As a public service, PLEASE NOTE that filtering on referral domains IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE! The spam has evolved - your filters need to evolve as well. This one is most easily stopped with a Language filter.

The easiest method is creating a Filter to remove traffic from that referral domain.  This solution only works from the date created, never backwards.  Hope this helps!

Hi @Saroj K,

 

You can find here detailed information about the secret.ɢoogle.com spam here. Most of the spam never passes through your site so you don't really need to do anything from your server.

 

What you will need is to create a few filters to prevent this fake data from getting into your Analytics. You will find step by step instructions on this guide to create these filters.

 

Hope it helps,

Hi Saroj,

 

Instead you can implement .htaccess file in the root folder of your server files(using FTP or other medium) including this below code. Copy past as it is. in the file. This will work for sure.

 

 

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} lifehacĸer.com [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} abc.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} thenextweb.com [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} bukleteg.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} arendovalka.xyzabc.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} brateg.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} budilneg.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} begalka.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} bezlimitko.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} bukleteg.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} boltalko.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} biteg.xyz [NC,OR]
RewriteRule .* - [F]
</ifModule>

@Saroj K@Ravi K, most of the spam is fake data sent directly to Google Analytics, meaning it never passes through your site.

 

So using .htaccess rules or plugins won't have any effect. The only thing you should do is apply the filters in GA to keep them away from your data,

 

Hope it helps,

Thanks a lot man. That was VERY useful (even discovered an Indian copycat of our website - pretty crazy) . Keep up the great content.
