I can see data in GA even though the code has not been added to my SalesForce based site

I can see data in GA even though the code has not been added to my SalesForce based single-page site yet, between 1 and 13 sessions a day. Very weird. How is this happening?

Hi,

 

It is most likely spam. Spammers are sending fake hits to GA using the measurement protocol. Please check the articles below about analytics spam.
