Exclamation Dump traffic from simple-share-buttons.com

Hey guys,

I am seeing a huge dump traffic from simple-share-buttons.com for my website. It's been like 2 months now.

Do you think it's because of the Social media sharing buttons that i have used in the blog?

Before, it was a huge traffic from Brazil country and I realized it was from Semalt.com crawlers and now it is from simple-share-buttons.com

Anyone having same problem?

Yes, I have faced this problem too. My site has received spam referral traffic from 2 sites i.e. simple-share-buttons.com and darodar.com

This spam traffic has nothing to do with your Social Media sharing buttons. I have goggled it and found 2 informative posts. Do check it.

Thanks for your prompt reply Melissa

Google product forum link is quite useful but I am shocked why Google is not taking any action on these SPAMMERS.

I was getting traffic from this site few weeks back and it now seems to have stopped. I don't think its due to any sharing, looks like its spam.

Hi,

I have faced the same problem. What I done is, In google analytics go to admin section click on traffic info there you can see referral exclusion list. Add the spam links that making spam counts in your website analytics. Please do these steps and see the changes.

You can use GA filter to block them appearing in your GA stats. I've blocked many of them using .htaccess. See how to use it here

tools.dynamicdrive.com/userban/

I got some of them blocked but few of them like 4webmasters.org, trafficmonetize.org
and free-social-buttons.com are still hitting my website and misleading me in GA

I have over 50 countries blocked from some of my domains I also have many bad bots blocked from these same sites.

Google bad bots list and grab a list of bots and create a .htaccess file to block them. If you don't know how to do that then Google it also or ask your host.

Thank you. I will google it. That kind of spam really annoys me.
