      Hi Vallabh,
      Google analytics will not consider these domains as referrals in Traffic Acquisition.

  1. It’s not like it’s going to solve the problem, it’s just going to make the source of that traffic Direct.

    1. Hi Alex,
      when a user enter the website address without clicking a link will be considered as a Direct traffic.
      If a user comes to a website from a website it will be considered as a referral.
      So it won’t work like direct traffic.

  2. My most of the clients are facing the same issue… that most of the traffic is coming from Poland. But why is google not smart enough to mark these traffic as spam.

      Hi Pankaj Gupta,
      There is no option in Google to avoid spam traffic. They provide service only, so that’s why they provide an option to stop unwanted referrals. Once unwanted domain added those domain will be rejected, also they won’t be considered as referral or direct in google analytics.
