Competitors url showing as referral

I have noticed that in our Acquisition report that one of the referral sites is the url of our competitor - we have searched their site and there is no link to our site?

 

Any reasons possible behind this would be greatly recieved Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

Add a "Referral path" as a secondary dimension in your Acquisition report. This might shed light on the URI where you should find the link. Maybe guest visitors don't have an access to this page. What's the number of sessions from this referral site?

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
