Data not belonging to account shows in reports James Trezise 10/16/12 9:38 PM
I installed Analytics to a domain a few weeks ago. All was going ok until reports for pages that do not exist started showing:
For example: /ga/abpages/2012-10-07T21:52:50.561Z-var2.html
How do I reset/restart the tracking to remove these entries?
btw, these pages do not appear in web logs for this domain, therefore they were never requested from this server.

Sounds like someone may have borrowed some of your site code and possibly not realized it included your ga tracking code.

You need to setup and apply an include filter for your hostname to your tracking profle.
It wont remove the historically incorrect data however it will fix the problem going forward and prevent the problem
reocurring via another site doing the same thing.. 

Use the proactive exclusion method described in this article:
