    Hey

    So is my first month with a recently launched ecommerce site, visits a day to site are very few at these firsts weeks of the site but almost 80% of current traffic is coming from Facebook as refer but are not human visits, I mean all stay 0 seconds on site, always. All rest of traffic from different sources is normal.

    https://gyazo.com/98899f7ca4a364bdfae0a3907a3122ea

    That´s stats for 1 day, and it´s every day like that.

    I have a FB page brand new too created with/for the site, which is posting automatically niche posts + promo posts with URLs to my products and site, page have 7 likes since creation since I am focussing on other area promotions and the FB page have 0 promotion made until today, so that visits are not from page fans at all.

    I guess Fb bots are getting the URLs from that page and visiting my site.

    The annoying part is I want my stats to be real and all this shitty bot traffic is messing my averages of all metrics, specially now that traffic is almost non existent while I grow all social accounts in social networks, but the few traffic I get is not getting measured properly.

    For example, if I want to know real visits in a given day, I have to go to social traffic, see FB "visits" and deduct them from total day visits, so then I can know real number.

    So basically, is there any way to block this Facebook bot traffic? or making analytics ignore it?

    Thanks

    I'll send you the way to set this up in GA under the promise that you won't share it with anymore... took me some time digging it up and I honestly don't want someone to profit from this in any way...

    Shoot me a PM...
