My site is being hit multiple times per day with spam referral traffic with 100% bounce rate and 0 seconds spent on site. Can this negatively affect my google rankings?
Waiting for your honest answers!

I personal did not experience any decrease in Search engine rankings, however I am also receiving some of the spam traffic. You can get rid of it by blocking them from .htaccess or from robots.txt file. If you are using WordPress than you might find some plugin which can block spam traffic to your website. You can also filter spam traffic in your Google analytics account.

Can't you block them? Maybe block IP's. I block IP's every day. Just to keep them off your site, nothing to do with bounce rate or anything.
