  • Divyanshu Dubey: Is there any way to remove such links/data from analytics?
  • Jim Munro: Someone else will be able to show you how to hide it but you cannot remove it. Everybody is affected by it in varying degrees. This might be useful. https://dumbseoquestions.com/.../removing_referral_spam...
