    So I'm getting hits from 'blackhatworld.com', as shown on Google analytics. The traffic is coming from Russia. I know this is a referral spam and no one from blackhatworld is doing this. There's a guy named 'Vitaly Popov' in Russia - most probably he is behind this. I wonder why is he using blackhatworld.com in this!

    This is a known issue with GA and I am quite sure google is going to take ages to get rid of this.

    I'm getting motherboard.vice.com and not my beloved blackhatworld.

    You can setup filters to block traffic from certain sites showing up in your GA. It's pretty straight forward.
