"to use this feature visit: Event-Tracking.com"

Hi!

I'm not entiraly familiarized with the idea of SPAM in Google Analytics, but I think that is what could be happening in my account.

Instead of the event labels Analytics shows "to use this feature visit: Event-Tracking.com" (image attached).

 

This only happens when I set the report to show long periods of time. It shows the correct information when it's short periods and less data points.

 

How can I fix it?

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

That particular spam was a problem a long time ago, and the data is stuck in your account. It is easiest if you just ignore it, but if you want to get rid of it, you will have to apply a custom segment with a filter to exclude it. There are a number of segments to deal with spam available in the GA Solution Gallery:
