A fly in your Google Analytics account

The team at Black Pepper recommends all friends and colleagues who have websites and/or blogs check your Google Analytics accounts for pro-Trump traffic as the new year is bringing us new and improved spam to tackle. (By improved I mean more annoying than ever.) Pro-Trump trolls are now hacking the language settings on Google Analytics for no better reason than they can. This may not have any real affect on your sites–the GA account is being spammed; your site is not being hacked. But if you care about your traffic data, you will have to make changes to your GA account to keep those data useful and usable.

Thankfully teams of well-intentioned geeks have figured out how to fix this. Read the following article for more information: Language Spam – The Latest Google Analytics Spam.
