Remove Robots And Spammers From Google Analytics

Have you noticed some unusual domain names appearing in your Google Analytics source/medium report recently?

  • darodar
  • semalt
  • ranksonic
  • buttons-for-website
  • ilovevitaly
  • savetubevideo
  • blackhatworth
  • social-buttons
  • get-free-traffic-now
  • buy-cheap-online
  • hulfingtonpost
  • and the list goes on.....

These referrers - crawlers, robots, spammers don't stay on your site for very long usually 0:00 to 0:06 seconds so they are pretty easy to spot compared to normal web traffic.

These spammers are really annoying and distort your google analytics reports.

Update July 2015 since we created the video in February 2015 we have noticed the spammers techniques have changed slightly and making it harder to detect and segment using the steps we had in the video.

We offer a bespoke service to segment the spam, bots and crawlers from your Google data find out more here


Every business with a website should have their site tracked with some form of analytics so you can measure and manage performance.
