Hi @Saurav M

 

If you see this page title (or any that isn't yours) then it is spam.

This guide should help you prepare the necessary filters to prevent most of the spam.

No it doesn't.

 

First, this data is sent directly to GA so there is no real connection (link) to your site. And second, Google doesn't use Analytics data for rankings. The only thing this traffic affects is your data but you can prevent this with the filters from the guide.
