You need to modify the .htaccess file on your web server. Details on how to go about that can be found here: http://www.wiyre.com/google-analytics-darodar-forum-spam-what-is-it/

The .htaccess isn't accessible with Yola so this isn't a potential solution.

This link using javascript may be of help.

Recently Google Analytics has introduced a bot and spider filter facility to prevent counts of any referred traffic through bot sites.

I suggest you install a raw analytics software, one that shows you all requests made to your site. I had the same problem, so I wrote a PHP app, to monitor all the requests. I noticed a lot of referrers that weren't shown in GA. I then started blocking requetsed, based on IP, hostname and user agent using my app. I still get the problem of ghost referrals but Im able to control to a certain degree spiders/bot and referrals from bad websites. For anyone who's interested in the app http://www.snippetbank.net/php/detecting-spam-requests-with-raw-analytics.html

Syed,

Yola users can't use PHP to write or place such scripts in Yola built sites. It is not a solution.

You can only use HTML and javascript but we don't have access to the .htaccess or root file.
