Receiving hits w/o implementation
We have created a new account but haven't installed the tracking code so far. Anyway, we saw some hits getting reported in Real Time with the referral how.to.travel.and.make.72369823.money.online.for.free.with.maps.ilovevitaly.com and on pages we definitely not have.
Here are some screenshot. Does anyone else know what might has caused this and hoe to identify false traffic?

Hi GA Guru,
thanks for your suggestion. I wonder if this even can happen if we haven't implemented the tracking code yet.
[EDIT]: Dig into the ghost traffic topic and found an explanation. Simply put, bots using measurement protocol plus generated UA-String: https://moz.com/blog/stop-ghost-spam-in-google-analytics-with-one-filter
