    I've seen various posts online about this, and setting up segments within Analytics to remove spam traffic. These techniques are great, but I simply cannot maintain the lists.
    I added some regex to try and filter out the spam referrals which helps to a degree, however I remove one set, and another 10 pop-up.

    Am I missing something here, or is this painful method of filtering the only way to do this?
    The regex I am using is:

    Code:
    7makemoneyonline\.com|adcash\.com|adviceforum\.info|anticrawler\.org|blackhatworth\.com|buttons-for-website\.com|cenokos\.ru|cenoval\.ru|cityadspix\.com|darodar\.com|econom\.co|edakgfvwql\.ru|europages\.com\.ru|gobongo\.info|hulfingtonpost\.com|iloveitaly\.ro|ilovevitaly\.co|ilovevitaly\.com|iskalko\.ru|kambasoft\.com|luxup\.ru|myftpupload\.com|o-o-8-o-o\.ru|priceg\.com|prodvigator\.ua|resellerclub\.com|savetubevideo\.com|screentoolkit\.com|semalt\.com|seoexperimenty\.ru|ilovevitaly\.ru|slftsdybbg\.ru|socialseet\.ru|superiends\.org|vodkoved\.ru|websocial\.me|ykecwqlixx\.ru|simple-share-buttons\.com
    OR
    Code:
    free-share-buttons\.com|site4.free-share-buttons\.com|pornhub-forum.uni\.me|iwebtool\.com|event-tracking\.com|Get-Free-Traffic-Now\.com|free-social-buttons\.com|pornhub-forum\.ga|urlopener\.com
