Why does this link "https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/" continue to show up as a top 15 Search Term in my Site Search Reports??

Perhaps someone thinks you are violating them and are trying to send you a message?  Smiley Happy  

 

You may want to build a segment for these users to explore what other attributes they have.  It could be plain old referral spam.

Thanks for the help.

 

I did some digging and I think it is a bot but they are not wanting to be filtered out by bot rules.

It comes back having a "network domain" = jigsaw.com, "service provider" = palo alto networks techops, also comes back being a windows7 pc using chrome using 1024x768 monitor.

 

That is about all the relevant info i can pull in using the secondary dimension on the Search Term Report.

 

What would be the best way to filter this out of a few profiles?
