    Does anyone know how to ban a country entirely from visiting your website?
    At this point it has become so crazy i am receiving 500+ hits from Russia!
    How could i block out Russia entirely?

    Killing bounce rate?
    Is it coming from Google? Likely not - it's most likely just referrer spam, so you needn't worry about any effect on bounce rate.

    I don't see the point of blocking an entire nation over some higher bounce from there.
