  1. Not to be a killjoy but, isn’t simply stopping google from showing ghost visitors more like when you hold your hand over the eyes of an infant? In their mind, you have disappeared while in reality you were always there…..
    I want to stop ghost visitors / referrers from even hitting the website in the first place.

    When I try to add all these spam links to filters, Google Analytics won’t let me. The “add” button is greyed out!
