Hi Guys,

Is there a way to exclude ourselves from Google Analytics' tracking?

I don't want my data jacked up by my own visits to my site.

Thanks!

Have you read the Google Anaylics documentation?

Hi Juggledad!

Nope not yet. I'll run a Google search for it.

Thanks!

Hi J'Dad!

I spent a couple of hours looking for codes tutorials as to how I can exclude myself from Google Analytics tracking.

I've seen two possible points here, using IP address filters and exclusions.

I know that there are some filters that can be permanent in GA and I don't want to mess that up.

Would you be able to help me step by step on how to do this?

Thanks!

If you don't want Google Analytics tracking on your site, just don't add the code to your site.

If you don't want to be indexed by Google's bots at all, use the Privacy settings for Wordpress.

Paulae, what he wants is to exclude himself from the counts so not to skew the results

I have not doen this myself and unless you have a permanent IP it maybe hard to do...

Oh. Duh. Wordpress Stats does exclude the site admin.

In Google Analytics, you'd go into your account settings for the domain, and add a filter to exclude an IP address or more than one.

Hi Paulae,

That's the problem, we don't have a dedicated IP address here in our country.

Thanks!

if you don't have a dedicated IP then there is no way to isolate yourself from the stats since there is nothing unique for google to use. maybe you should look at wp-stats
