Search Engine Optimization/Lalit Kumar SEO Expert on weird traffic Google Update


QUESTION: My website keeps getting a tremendous amount of direct traffic from 3 cities Houston, Austin and Washington, D.C. They land on random pages in my website. I know this is for sure not real traffic and it is not normal behavior. The bounce rate is 0 and time is 0 on all the hits. Any help would be grateful.

ANSWER: David,

Yes...its all Fake traffic

Check copyscape for duplicate issues to trace culprit websites.

Someone might be scrapping your website.

QUESTION: Thanks for your response. I looked into that possibility and it's not being copied. Any other ideas I can try?

Dear David,

Sometimes fishy backlinks can generate referral traffic.

Check backlinks of your website and remove the impact of any negative links using:

1) Contact webmaster to remove links

2) If they are not responding then please disavow those links using google webmaster tools
