    Is this sabotage or just a nuisance?

    In between dealing with a huge drop in traffic, bad quality traffic,, porn queries from Google??, low conversions, and misc. other stuff that I don't understand coming through my Analytics....

    is this a new Firefox add-on that can be used to generate false traffic/queries?

    I've had similar visits (thought I finally had blocked)... but now see a Firefox add-on... and I'm not thrilled with the message.

    Do you think I should forward this to Google? Wouldn't they already know about it? Anyone else seen this one?

    sabotage...

    “Beat with a shovel the weak google spots addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/iloveitaly” is the latest keyword phrase used to spam Google Analytics accounts globally. The “beat with a shovel the weak google spots addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/iloveitaly” keyword targets your website’s analytical data and makes it appear like someone who searched for “beat with a shovel the weak google spots” has visited your website. However, no onehas actually visited your website.......

    Nice to see I'm current with the 'latest and greatest'....

    Melanie, I'm reading it as more nuisance vs. sabotage? My b/w charges notwithstanding!

    Or is this affecting how Google 'sees' my site? Why hasn't Google stopped this garbage yet?

    Really I have no idea. I am merely floundering in the SEO sea.
