Hi guys,

 

Been checking out my referrals to my site of late and have notice a few entires I am unfamiliar with.

 

Are these spam?

site33.social-buttons.com

site22.social-buttons.com

semalt.semalt.com

 

 

These ones I am assuming are legit Twitter, Facebook?

t.co

m.facebook.com

lm.facebook.com

l.facebook.com

 

What are these two?

social-buttons.com

k9safesearch.com

 

 

Thanks guys!

K9 Safe Search, is here

 

 


site33.social-buttons.com

site22.social-buttons.com

Could be spam or the could be tracking codes from some one using this.

 

SE Malt is a so-called "SEO tracking" tool.

K9SafeSearch is a kid-friendly search service and you should be okay with that referral traffic.  The social-buttons.com and SEMalt referrers are fake.  You can block SEMalt on your server and should but social-buttons.com has been bypassing Websites and just triggering their Google Analytics scripts.

 

At the present time the only way to block these analytics spammers is to switch to another analytics provider.  Google Analytics is the worst of all the analytics providers anyway.  But there is no guarantee these traffic faking bots won't eventually target some other analytics tool.

 

Server-side analytics analysis tends to be best but only if you can actually install and manage the tools yourself.
