Spam and Analytics

Hi Folks,

What does spam actually do to your analytics and what actually happens when a spam filter is put in place.
As I haven't got a clue about spam in my analytics or how to set up a filter, I was looking at going for a professional setup by Mike Sullivan "has anyone here used him for their filters".
Cheers.
Kev.

Hi Kev
Mike knows his stuff but community guidelines restrict the promotion of any third party sources.
If you've read Mike's post on spam in GA, you really have read the best possible source on the matter as Google is quite quiet about it.

There are automated methods (some paid and some free) to add the filters to your account automatically.
