Analytics visits

Hello,

my google analytics shows some visits I pretty much know they are fake.  I recently put my site online, I am from Serbia and visits are from USA, it happens every other day and number is 25. Most of them are from Virginia Lynchburg. Can you help me fix this if its a spam of some sort or its legal visits(I highly doubt it). 

Website is  www.zeljkoskipic.com.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

the first thing you can do is to determine if there is really a referral spam issue present with your data or some crawlers just like to visit your site (may be some services you subscribed to - usually some SEO services).

Create a new view.
Apply a new view filter (custom) which will include Hostname zeljkospisic\.com.
See if the "fake" traffic decreases.

Hope it helps!

Kind regards,

Its a static bootstrap site, I just did basic seo no services. I mean, there is no actual problems with site, just high amount of visits, more every day. I dont know if it can be harmful or not, I just hate it because i know its fake visits.
