I'm using Google analytics on a small business website from Germany. Today I noticed 86 visitors from Palo Alto on a Sunday. No matter where they come from and why there are visiting the site, they are distorting the statistics. I'm only interested in visitors from Germany.

Is there any way to get rid of this traffic sources?

You will need to create an Advanced Segment. Towards the top of the page you will notice a button called "Advanced Segments". Click that and then choose "+New Advanced Segment".

You will need to exclude location, then type in Palo Alto. That will now remove any traffic that has come from that area.
