    Google Analytics Not Showing Any Real Traffic


    I am new to web design, and have just built 2 new websites - a traditional website and a blog - both on Wordpress.

    I have a serious problem with Google Analytics. I have successfully set up and verified both sites on the Google Console, and they both show up on Google Analytics. However, one of them shows only spam and no real traffic.

    Here is a photo of the Google Analytics Dashboard - I am talking about the last 2 sites - and (The one at the top is my own site that I just use myself, not for public use)

    They were both showing some spam, so I used the instructions on this site - - to exclude the spam.

    I am new to all of this, so it is very possible that I am just not understanding how to do this right. Any help (geared to a novice) would be really appreciated, as it's so frustrating to be spending so much time on this with so little results.

    Thank you

    I had the same problem, showing no visits even when I was entering there from 3 different IP addresses and devices. Somehow that tool doesn't work well at 100%. You can try other similar services.
