What is this messages under languages? Is some kind of negative SEO?
Referrer spam... it is a unicode domain name... The first G isn't an ASCII G it is a unicode character that resembles ASCII G. You can list anything as a language... clever hack.
As said above, new form of ref spam. They targeted languages as that is prominently feature for anybody pulling up their GA account. Nothing retroactive but you can set a filter for languages to get rid of that. Nothing to worry about and the issue here is also that UA- numbers are subsequent so even without bot traffic they just use http requests to send that info to GA accounts.
We already talked about it. It is that Russian guy (vitaliy or something) that is sending this spam. He got kinda famous lately.
This is one of the reasons I stopped using Google Analytics. The time wasted dealing with junk data like this was too much to bear. The other reason was not wanting to continue spoon feeding Google all my website data.
I've been reading a lot of threads lately about this spammer guy. We should probably report him to the police!
