    So my bounce rate is higher than it should be because i'm getting weird SEO traffic from places like Russia and China.

    These are the referral sites that are fucking with my shit.... Is there a way I can block these mother fuckers?

    If it makes it easier, my niche is very targeted towards the USA and Canada so blocking all of Russia would not be opposed by me.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can block entire countries from visiting your site by editing your .htaccess file, there are several guides on Google on how to do this. You should get to the bottom of this though, it's quite possible a competitor is doing this to you.

    Hi,
    I usually put this in my .htaccess file to prevent spam referral and update it accordingly including new spam referral bots that visit my site.
    Hope it helps.

    SetEnvIfNoCase Referer SPAM REFERRAL WEBSITE spambot=yes
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from env=spambot

    I guess you see these referrals in your google analytics. If so, search in google for "analytics referral spam", there are some actions you can take tyo minimize this spam tactics. htaccess won't help you in this case, because the spammers don't visit your site, but are using some kind of software that uses your google-analytics account number (UA-xxxx) and sending requests directly to the GA-servers. If the spammers use a good piece of software there's nothing you can do about it.

    I agree that a competitor could be doing this for you. Have you tried the advice listed above and if so what worked well for you?

    You can filter them out in google analytics. That's the only way to get rid of them.

    if you have wordpress then i would suggest these.

    1. download wordpress and update all files via ftp.
    2. use wordfence or sucuri plugin to scan everything and fix infected files.
    3. use better security (itheme security) to harden wordpress.
    4. change login file name and your admin username. have tougher passwords (10+ chars, with caps, non caps, numbers and symbols.)

    by doing these you will have secured site. (atleast 90% secured.)
