Hello,

 

My name is Hardik.

 

One of our client website has 96000 visits. I am shocked how its possible?

 

How can i decide it is genuine or SPAM?

 

Can you please help?

Waiting for your reply.

 

Thanks,

Hardik

Hey Hardik, 

 

Since I don't have any context I will make some assumptions: 

#1 You look like a shopify website that is doing some form of dropshipping and the website is relatively new. 

#2 Go to your Network Report in Google Analytics and look at the dimension 'Host Name' - if you are seeing a large amount of traffic that is not from from domains that are your own then it would mean you are getting a large amount of ghost referral spam. If this is the case use this amazing guide made by one of our rising stars here in the Analytics community! - https://www.ohow.co/ultimate-guide-to-removing-irrelevant-traffic-in-google-analytics/

#3 Go to the Source/Medium report and try to get an idea where all your traffic is originating from. 

 

Lastly I would say be careful using cheap traffic tactics or using dubious link sharing or link buying services because you can get a large amount of spam traffic. 

 

Let me know what you find!

Hey @hardik v , 

 

The information is in the article I previously attached. The filter name can be whatever you want and the pattern is filters with the following:

# Expression 1

(best|dollar|success|top1)\-seo|(videos|buttons)\-for|anticrawler|^scripted\.|semalt|forum69|7makemon|sharebutton|ranksonic|sitevaluation|dailyrank|vitaly|profit\.xyz|rankings\-|dbutton|uptime(bot|check|\.com)

# Expression 2

datract|hacĸer|ɢoogl|responsive\-test|dogsrun|tkpass|free\-video|keywords\-monitoring|pr\-cy\.ru|fix\-website|checkpagerank|seo\-2\-0\.|platezhka|timer4web|share\-buttons|99seo|3\-letter|top10\-way
 
 
This should answer your question.
