Are these data really direct spam?[ Edited ]
June 2017 - last edited June 2017
The 4 month(2016.12 ~ 2017. 3) I have a lot of direct traffic. Instead of +- 100 sessions a day, this is around 300 sessions a day. I could not find a reason why there is a lot of traffic(day/about3,000) on our website.The exit rate is less than 60%, and the host name is also a normal provider.There was no spam signal on the server. Is there any other possibility that this is spam or pure vistor?

Hi @Andrew Lee
Spam is more like something you would find on referrals/keywords or other parts of your analytics where the spammer will leave a trail so you visit his site.
What you metion looks more like bot traffic. There are many bots crawling sites with differen purposes, some good others not so much.
I recommend you to check other dimensions like flash version, browser/browser version, OS, network, and see if you find some pattern.
If you find one you can create an advanced segment to exclude these traffic.
I also recommend you to check your site access log for those moths, you can have more imformation there about IPs from those visits.
Hope it helps,
