Top organic landing pages showing "Home page" as the page title when it isn't set as that

Hey

 

In the organic landing page report in GA, I'm seeing a lot of sessions to the home page with page title "Home page" when that isn't actually the page title. 

 

I've seen this for a few clients over the past few months.  

 

 

Any ideas what this is?

 

Majority of sites are on WordPress.

 

Thanks

Hi,

Most likely they are spam hits, spammers are using the measurement protocol to send the fake hits and can fake any of the parameters in the payload.

Read about the measurement protocol here:

Please check the article below about removing analytics spam:

Hope this helps.
