    Hello everybody.
    Today while checking G analytics I found the below sites in my Referral traffic.

    [​IMG]

    I can't get from where those visitors came... I don't use any floating share button. And visitors those are actually affecting my site's overall bounce rate.

    Can anyone please help me to understand this? And, any way to get rid of this?

    .htaccess don't help much - they never open your site at all, thus .htaccess is not read.

    What helps is creating a filter inside Analytics (se the moz-article) to only show valid referrers.

    NO! Google has no idea that they are "bouncing" from your site. So sick of this question. Learn how the internets works people.

    And filters in GA is the correct answer. The better answer is just to ignore it. If referral spam is that big of a deal in your analytics, then your site is dead.

    Google knows they are spam referrals and they will in no way impact your ranking or quality of your visitor behavior seo factors in Google's eyes. So no worries.
    If you want clearer reports, just block them in Analytics. Otherwise simply ignore it.
