How to exclude yourself from Google analytics
When you have a website that is receiving only a couple of hundred “visits” per day and you account for 20 of those you are going to greatly skew your Google analytics results. Excluding yourself from being counted in the stats is really quite simple and can be easily accomplished by using the filter tool inside your Google analytics account.
The following video will show you how to easily exclude your own visits from your Google analytics.
The problem with not excluding your own activity from your Google analytics results is that if you account for 10% or even more of your site traffic, and many of you do, your results are going to be in error by 10% or more. It will affect your time on site, pages viewed, bounce rate, and other statistics as well.
You can accomplish this task in less than 4 minutes even if you have never done it before. Once you create your new filter it can easily be applied to all of your sites linked with that same account.
