Overall, there are three ways you can remove bot traffic from your Google Analytics data:
- just check the “exclude all hits from known bots and spiders” when you go to the View Settings in the Admin section.
- create a filter to exclude any suspicious traffic you’ve identified. You can do so by creating a new View where you’ve unchecked your bot setting and where you’ve added a filter that excludes suspicious traffic, using variables such as city, IP, ISP, hostname, sourcename, etc.
- Use the Referral Exclusion List, which you can find under Tracking Info in the Property column of the Admin section. This list gives you the ability to exclude domains from your Google Analytics data.
