|A question about a particular traffic source.||Covenant Doors||5/18/12 4:44 PM|
When I go to my traffic source section to see the medium and source of customers to my site, I keep seeing one that says: clicks.thespecialsearch.com / referral.
From what I am able to see it is a virus. But, I cannot determine where this virus (if it is one) is and how to get rid of it. I have a very good virus software and it has not detected anything on my computer.
Does anyone know what exactly what this is and should I be concerned and what can I do to get rid of it?

This will be a referral to the site, or tracking code that has been appended by thespecialsearch.com.
Does the data interact with the site or is all results such as bounce rate 100% or pages per visit 0?
If stats look okay it would suggest this source is a genuine referral.
Hope this helps

It always shows a 100% bounce rate with 0 page visits.

This sounds like malware or spyware that has managed to embed code into your site.
I quickly searched google for thespecialsearch.com and it returned a number of results that may confirm this.
I would send all this info to your web developers to sort but if running the site yourself then the below link has a number of solutions suggested, I can't tell which one will work unfortunately.
Apologys if the below link doesn't work as I am on the iPad.
Please let me know if this helps.
