Getting Referral spam to Landing Page not on my domain.

Hi,

 

I'm getting a problem of referral spam showing the landing page of lifehacker.com, apple.com, inst.webinstantservice.com, www.foxnews.com, blog.google, google.org etc.

 

The refferrals are mostly from spam sites but they are also from places like reddit and stackexchange. 

 

And I'm also getting referrals from blackhatesite.com which doesn't sound good.

 

Any help on how to block or filter these items?

Help would be appreciated.
