How to filter referer spam out of your results

What is the best way to filter/cope referer spam with Snowplow?

Hi @Something,

Could you provide some more details about the referrer spam you are seeing?



Hi Christophe,
None yet, but in Google Analytics I installed filters to well filter them out of my results (part of the basic analytics setup). How do Snowplow users handle their referrer spam?

We don’t filter events out of the box. It’s currently up to our users to inspect the data and filter out events as part of the data modeling/analytics process.

Hope this answers your question.

Just to add: we’ve done some initial thinking about referral spam in this ticket, but haven’t come up with a concrete approach yet.
