    Hi,

    The last 2 days Google showed an unnormal high number sessions to a website of mine:
    screen1.jpg
    153 sessions Tues
    143 sessions Wed

    So I went to statcounter to see the actuall number of visitors it has registered and it is only a few visitors
    screen2.jpg

    16 visitors Tues
    21 visitors Wed

    Do you knwo what is going on here?

    Check the traffic channel in Acquisition > All traffic > Channels. Analysis all channels and importantly the referral channel. Check if any unusual spam is spoofing your website or what?

    If you check the exact link from reddit it is from a post about a russian site, just a way of them to advertise

    I use the german version of analytics but I try to translate "report/trafficsources-referrals" and there you click on reddit and get the exact link from reddit
