Anybody understand this:
Looks like someone created a piece of software to pump up Google-Analtyics stats
yeah but what for? i don't understand really the reason to do it
what the point of fake stats? no money in fake stats
tell that to flippa sellers
I think if you show the false statistics from Google tothe sponsors, it is possible to place their ads on your site for big money.
Of course, it will not be long to work for each site. But what prevents to make a lot of these sites?
This exploitation can be very valuable in the right hands. People looking to sell websites in particular (flippa as the other person mentioned)
if im not mistaken, its manipulating the js code on the website.
why would anyone buy a site without exploring analytics on it.
a time on site = ZERO is a red flag
language AND location not set for your major source is a big red flag
browser distribution should be heavily with chrome and firefox AND internet explorer.
anyways, you can slowly tell with real and fake sites by simply thinking about users:
Are they on mobile? a Wide range of devices should be used.
Same goes for browser. People still use safari and opera.. that should be seen on analytics.
pages. longtail should get traffic, 1-3 uniques are still visible on analytics
country. You should get some traffic from africa. (english language website). Ok, maybe not specifically, but you should get traffic from countries that youve never even heard of.
The beauty of analytics is that it can be chopped down to the point you can CSI anything in there.
Yea, he has already thought of that:

I've recorded the video and am the one who discovered the mistake.
give yourself that time I have been in contact with google to fix it, it's been months since I have not reported and fixed.
Soon publishes bug in my blog as it happens.
there IS money in fake stats
A lot of people base their ad budget on a site's Google Analytics data. Also, Flippa......
Exactly. Not doing due diligence on ga when purchasing a web property is the typical noob-buyer's fault... ALWAYS do your own independent analysis, trusting ga is calling for trouble
Sorry for responding to this thread and not sending you a pm

Just a marketing way for that YouTube user to get more views.. and people fall for it.. but those people=viewing ads/clicks= more money for the up loader
