    Exclamation Spam in GA - Audience Report - WTH?


    OK, so this is odd! New client and went into their GA and saw the attached in the Audience/Overview report. Clearly some kind of spam.

    Has anyone seen this before and what does this mean? Thanks for any guidance.2017-05-04_11-31-19.jpg

    Heya bryanbloom ...that is good ol' referrer spam... what you'll want to do is set up a filter to exclude that traffic...also, you'll probably want to block that traffic at the server level as well...hope this helps..if you have any other questions on setting up the filter or blocking the traffic, let us know

    *I've never seen the pro trump one or the smiley face one ...interesting lol
