This, whatever it is appears within my google analytics report and seems to be taking over my traffic!

How do I get rid of it!

How did it appear there without my consent?

I am not a computer geek so for those of us who aren't computer geeks I just thought there would have been some safe guards against this.

Hi,

 

It is spam, sent by spammers directly to Google Analytics, it is not going through your site. Please check the thread below for details:
