    Hello Everyone,

    From last few days, My client website suddenly started getting huge spam traffic from US but target location in India. Website bounce rate is getting increased
    day by day.

    My question is How to fix this issue?
    Are you guys also getting same issue?

    "Any help really appreciated"

    The only thing I can suggest is you install google analytics and try and see where it's coming from exactly. Other than that you maybe able to trace it by the logs inside your clients hosting account.

    This happens to our websites sometimes. What we do is block the source referring domain with Apache (cPanel or however you can add blocks), so the traffic is denied and never loads the website. Also, add a filter to Google Analytics that excludes the traffic from analytics data.

    1.
    Admin - View Settings
    Check mark Bot Filtering

    2.
    To block a specific domain:

    Admin < View < Filters
    New Filter - Filter name - Filter type - Filter field - Filter pattern
    Name it, Custom - Exclude - referral and put the to be filtered domain in pattern and click SAVE

    Even I was getting similar issue just one week back. I have fixed all spam link through filter option in Google Analytic.

    Login to Google Analytic and go to filter option and put all spam link where you do not want to get traffic. After some days, hopefully, You are not getting spam back link.
