Hi everyone - I am new here in the community, so please correct me if I am doing anything the wrong way
On my website via Google Analytics I have discovered that the majority of the site visits comes from one particular spambot “bottraffic4free.pw”. I probably could just create a filter in Analytics, but I would much rather just block it before entering the page.
The spambot is found when I in Google Analytics look at Acquisition -> Referrals. Here in the column “Source” the spambot is displayed.
I have tried to create a firewall rule where referrer source “bottraffic4free.pw” is blocked but that does not help me (I think referral and referrer is not the same).
Is there a way to block this bottraffic4free.pw spambot so it does not get access to the site at all?
Thanks a lot in advance.
