Hi,

 

I am new here and into technical things. From last few weeks I am getting huge traffic from the Reddit and Stack Exchange and because of this, I am unable to get the actual visit on my website.

 

I would like to understand that are this spam visitors and if they are what all protection majors I have to take to protect my website.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks & Regards

Jitesh Siddhu

Hi @Jitesh S,

 

In order to prevent this fake traffic from getting into your reports, you should apply a couple of filters first.

If you can't see real visits on your site I recommend you to use the Tag Assistant extension to test your tracking code is correctly implemented. It is pretty straight forward.

 

Hope it helps,
