Dear 

I have google analytic page view report with url hit "/rapnet/wellsfargooo/index.html".

But dont have this url in our website, we dont use anywhere in our website.

 

I could not identify from where this will be tracked, can any one help me out to track this entry.

I can see in analytics as its from US and direct source.

 

Thanks,

Santhosh

You are dealing with referrer spam.
The easiest way to deal with this is to:
- Go to the Google Analytics Admin section
- Select the correct view
- Go to Filters
- Click Add filter
- Give your filter a name such as "Include only my website"
- Under Predefined, select "Include Only"
- Under Select Source or Destination, select "traffic to the hostname"
- Under Select expression, select "that contains"
- In the Hostname field, enter "yoursite.com", where yoursite.com is really your domain name.

Save your filter and enjoy new, somewhat-spam-free traffic!
