    Our website has abnormal spam traffic from reddit forum and livehacker in these 2 days. Can the spam traffic affect our site rating? How can we block the spam?

    No, as they are just bots and search engines are familiar about them.
    You just have to implement filters and segments to your analytics to not include them in your reports.
