My website doesn't have many pages but when I am looking in Analytics under Events - Pages - there are results in there that are google pages that have nothing to do with my site.  One says something about google redesign nest and another says google apparel?  Does anyone know why these are there and are they inflating my data?

Hi E H,

 

Most likely this is spam traffic.  Click on Secondary dimension and type in Hostname. This will add a second column to your report to show the domain the traffic was reported on. Real traffic will show as your actual domain while spam will show as (not set) or a domain that does not belong to you.

 

Cheers!
