As @nyuen pointed out the hostname is an optional query-string-parameter. What I failed to realize before is that Google Analytics automatically extracts the hostname from the full page url stored under the dl parameter, if the dr parameter isn't provided separartly. In general, it seems GA paramters which are not set are notlisted in the query string. As ...

It is possible that many or all of those sessions are coming from analytics spammers. Spammers have realized that they can inject data into your Google Analytics without ever even visiting the site. They simply make calls directly to Google's tracking scripts reporting that they have visited your site (even though they never have). They often do this ...

They are separate pages - the client is using a different request URI for each. Canonical links simply indicate the content has been duplicated. In order to get Analytics to treat them as the same, you'll have to rewrite the URI for the records. Pick the one you'd like to appear and create a custom filter in Analytics.

I've started using the following code: RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://.*[bad_referrer]\.com/ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ – [F,L] This looks for the referrer, in your case semalt.com, and creates a bad request. If you want to add more conditions use [NC,OR] until you get to the last item. If mod_rewrite isn't available, this technique will not work. You ...

This isn't a direct answer to your question but to your problem: Try a hostname filter on your Analytics account instead. Filter only for your domain. The only situation in which you'll get views without your domain being the hostname is if you're serving content on other domains - such as via an iFrame. When it comes to crawlers, there's many techniques. ...
