Hi

 

We have a website with very low traffic (< 10/day), and just starting to use google analytics. I've noticed that 33% of our traffic comes from one source, from a city called Seymour - no referrer (direct).  I've excluded spiders and bots in the settings. I know this cannot be real.

Any thoughts on the cause of this?

It has 0% bounce rate, yet 0:00:00 average time per session. I would think of the average session time is 0, the bounce rate would be 100%?

 

Thanks for your help!

Regards,

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

 

Yes session duration cannot be calculated for a bounce (it requires a  2nd hit).  Why don't you create a custom segment for this city and then look at the rest of your reports to try to find a way to filter it - if it's bogus. 

 

Something like this:
