Something is going wrong with my analytics languages.

hey guys,


So a while ago I starting seeing some irregularities in our analytics account, specifically in the language section. This started to appear:

Secret.ɢ You are invited! Enter only with this ticket URL. Copy it. Vote for Trump!


I Googled it and it said to add some exclusions to certain campaign sources so I added, and which is where it said the spamming is coming from. 


Now it's worse and more have appeared. Please see the pic for reference. 



How can I fix this?

Hi @Brett C.


Filtering in the source is not recommendable, since as you already noticed is not efficient. Instead, you should apply the filters recommended in this guide.


Hope it helps,
