I get visitors on my website from redirections, for instance tinyurl.com or ask.fm (Ask.fm does a redirection automatically when people share a link).
In Google Analytics, all these visitors are displayed like if they were coming from India (city: Faridabad): I suppose that ask.fm servers are based there and in Estonia. I know though that most of my visitors are in France and other European countries.
I tried to go through a second redirection using an auto-refresh on a personal website, to "clean" the visitor's data from any reference to India, but it didn't worked (it only worked for one in 5 maybe). Same for 2 redirections in a row.
Do you have any idea how I could correct my data to display the right visitor's country?
PS: I'd like to add some important details about the redirection I've tried. The redirect I've tried looks like this: tinyrul/ask.fm -> one of my website with META REFRESH -> my website page where I want the visitor to arrive
I think that one of the key clues here is the fact that I am using a basic META Refresh, and it is not enough to "clean up" the ask/tinyurl server information. But what else could/should I use, that is where I'm stuck at.
PS2: I tried a 301 redirection. Didn't work neither... I'm really getting short on ideas. tinyurl/ask.fm => personal website with 301 redirects to => personal website where I want the visitors to arrive
