Google’s Zombie Traffic

I found this somewhere online.
I found this somewhere online.

Google recently has been sending tons of garbage traffic to company sites. They claim it’s not them, however the evidence is clearly mounting that Google IS doing this.

We’re not exactly sure why, but the traffic they send NEVER converts, always clicks around in a awkward pattern.. then vanishes. Everyone else that we receive traffic from does convert at a normal rate and clicks in a more logical pattern.

Some Signs that you are getting Google Zombie Traffic (no specific order).

They reach one page from another, though no hyperlink exists between the two.
The traffic never converts, not just low conversion, literally zero conversion.
Traffic looks like a spike initially until you notice the conversion rate is zero.

Come clean Google, why are you sending Zombie Traffic? Our sites are in English.. it comes in via spikes and it’s annoying to say the least, messes up conversion tracking and ROI.
