    I've never heard of a "Fake Downloads" site. Do you sell fake downloads, re-direct downloads, or what?

    Anyway, if you're concerned about using Analytics, then you should not use it. Of course, some people say Analytics is safe, but personally I don't like giving Google access to precise performance metrics on my websites.

    Its a bad idea if you intend to build any links (especially blackhat ones) to it in my opinion.

    REally ?
    Is it too hard to imagine?
    Google owns Analytics, so you are just making them a favor to de-index you easier! Tadaaaaaaam!

    Oh shit bro... you're absolutely right. And a de-indexed site would be a dead site (at least for organic traffic).

    Say for example you are making 500 backlinks a week, but Analytics on your site is saying you are only getting 50 visitors then its very obvious you are up to no good. :)

    Yup, because Google will then know that those backlinks can not be natural.
