How can I filter sharebutton.spam from Google Analytics?  I tried creating a custom filter selecting Campaign Source.  However, this filter is not stopping the spam.  Thanks.

Hi @Mark L, don't create filer based on the soure/name of the spam. It isn't efficient anymore. Instead you should use a hostname filter. It will prevent most of the spam.

Thank you for your response.  Under Hostname, all that I see is (not set).  I'm not sure how to create a Hostname filter.  Please advise.  Thanks.
