Several publishers noticed some unusual bot traffic in their Google Analytics account between 31 Jan 2021 – 3 Feb 2021 to a page bottraffic.live. Actually you will be directed to a website that sells traffic when you search bottraffic.live because that page does not exist. It is a smart way of free advertising and rapid attraction.
If the traffic was sent with bad intention, publishers could have faced some serious damage in the form of revenue deduction or account ban by google. Despite publishers knowing about the bot traffic, they are not being able to filter out their website traffic.
In this blog, we will help publishers to filter out the bot traffic from their website traffic.
Can Publishers Filter Out Bot Traffic in Google Analytics?

It does not really mean that the bot traffic is filtered out and you are safe from the damage of fraudulent traffic.
