Hi everyone, my problem is organic spam traffic. First spam websites (mentioned below) started appearing in referral traffic but now they are now in organic traffic section. How is it possible? My website doesn't come when I search any of these website url in Google.

 

www.social-button.xyz

www. [censored]-paid-share-buttons.xyz

website-stealer-warning-alert.hdmoviecams.com 

 

How can I remove them from everywhere on Analytics?

Hi Ravi,

This "hits" are not real is fake data sent directly to your Google Analytics so there is not connection with your site at all, you may find this type of spam as a referral, organic or even as an event.

The following guide will help you stop and clean the spam no matter what name it uses or where in your reports shows.
