Google Analytics Displaying Incorrect Source/Landing Page URLs

1 min read
This appears to be the result of an affiliate scheme (referral spam). The intention is for you, as the Google Analytics account owner, to attempt to verify the legitimacy of the hit and therefore click the link, leading to their site.
This scheme is in no way related to Wix. The Google Analytics events are randomly generated, and by chance are associated with your Google Analytics account.
Google Analytics does have specific filters to remove these types of results, which you can use, if you choose to. Wix cannot provide support for setting up filters as this is a Google product. You can learn more on Google's Support page. However, if you do wish to add filters, we recommending adding the filters on a new View. For more information, click here.
