Well the bandwith issue we can hardly help but there are plenty of ready instructions for most common situations but in some cases you can find 1 common nominator for the traffic and then filtering is fairly easy. If you check the top 5 you should be covered

https://www.google.fi/search?q=google+analytics+spam+filters

 

Check these pieces of information:

Hostname

Service Provider

Network domain

 

you can also check the OS / Browser / Device to see if the fake traffic has common characteristics.

 

Post back if you need more guidances or if you want to share your findings.

Hi Pawan,

 

Even I am facing the same issue, in my case I have pointed out some similarities through Analytics where the spammy traffic I am getting has some common characteristics. Such as

 

1. All traffic is through Mobile Device

2. All traffic is through country "India"

3. All spam traffic is coming through "Opera Mini" browser (since bounce rate is whopping 97%)

4. Service provider is "Reliance jio infocomm ltd" and "Reliance jio infocomm limited" (majority)

 

Please help me, what should I block and how should I get rid of this fake traffic.
