    In now days I really so confuse about social share buttons, many of our company clients sites traffic coming from a referral link which is simple-share-buttons.com with 100% new users & 100% bounce rate, I know the traffic is not useful from this referral link, when I go that site there is an script available, so kindly let me know if anyone have ideas regarding this, also I have added the snapshot where you can see the useless traffic coming.

    Hey there,

    It's referral spam. It's really annoying and is bot traffic - not real people. You're best to just ignore it. There are ways in analytics to ignore that source to get a more accurate reading of your bounce rate.

    This kind of traffic is called Ghost Referrer Spam it never actually visits your site, there are many ways to stop them but all include filters in your Analytics. Try any of the solutions here ohow.co/block-referrer-spam-list/
