My google analytics report detects wrong address

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My website has been created in USA, and my customer is local only.

 

However, Google Analytics is detecting visitor from Russia, and all other country.

 

Report shows they visit the website address " / ", which is not in my website.

 

I do not understand what " / " is and why these visitors are included in my reports.

 

Could anyone help me how to fix this problem?

Hi,
If you dont block access to your website in your server settings, it is possible to you have visits out of your country.
There are many reasons. For example spam referral traffic or adserver's traffic. Also people can use vpn like zenmate.
And likewise these can be search engine's robots for Indexing your website. https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1315708?hl=en

There is a useful link to understand spider and bot traffic.

And "/" means your homepage. For example http://www.yourwebsite.com/ this page will shown in reports "/"
If you have "/" and /index.html page for homepage you can find here how you define your default homepage.
