Why am I getting this weird url  /www1.free-share-buttons.top showing up?  I'm running analytics on a dev Heroku site.

Hi Dave,
from the url in your post, I'd say its spam data. Its a known issue for GA and also other Analytics programs too.

The following article is a long but strongly recommended read. It will familiarize you with the differnt types of spam
data that occur and how to setup the filters necessary for dealing with it to keep your reports funk free

Thanks
