Analytics Content Drilldown Is Showing Adult Sites Connected to my Domain

Greetings,

 

Hope all is well - I tried to search for information pertaining to my issue online but I'm primarily finding problems that relate to spam traffic from adult sex sites.

 

I have logged back in to my Google Analytics account for a company page I manage for the first time in a while, and a number of sex site urls that are attached to my domain are appearing in the content drilldown. When you click the preview page button, a page pops up that uses the layout of the website and even retains some of the menu links, but has spammy sex writing and embedded links to porn sites littered through out.

 

Attached is a screen grab that shows some of the sites that are appearing in the content drilldown (I apologize for the content).

 

Does this mean the site has been hacked?

 

Pardon my ignorance in these matters. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 3.58.48 PM.png

Hi @Patrick G,

 

If the page paths exist on your domain(an actual page is being loaded yoururl.com/spam_path, no 404), this means you actually have those pages. In this case, yes, your website might have been hacked or someone put those pages mistakenly.

 

If there is no page exist, this means you had spam traffic data in your GA.

 

I hope this helps.
