If you’re using Google Analytics to monitor your blog traffic, you’ll want to make sure your own visits to your blog aren’t being counted. Removing yourself from your Google Analytics data is pretty simple.
There are multiple ways to exclude yourself from Google Analytics. The approach I’m sharing is called ip filtering, which means we’ll be stopping Google Analytics from tracking your home ip address.
Before we get started, you must have Google Analytics installed on your site. If you need assistance with this, be sure to read How to Add Google Analytics to WordPress.
How to Remove Yourself from Google Analytics Data
1).Visit What’s My IP. The moment you reach this site, at the very top of the page you’ll see your IP address. Copy it.
2). Go to your Google Analytics account and navigate to Admin > View > Filters.
3). Click on Add Filter.
4). In the Filter Name box, type “Exclude – Home IP Address.”
5). Under Filter Type select “Custom” in the Filter Field, select IP Address.
6). In the Filter Pattern box, paste your IP address and save your changes.
