I think of Google Analytics as a very powerful tool to see what content of the site is appreciated by users, how the site is found etc.
To exclude myself from being tracked I added an IP filter.
Just log in to your Analytics account, click ‘Analytics Settings’ (top left below the logo) and find the filter manager (bottom right, below the table of sites). There, click ‘Add Filter’, name it and choose ‘Exclude all traffic from an IP address. Enter the IP and add select the appropriate websites (don’t forget to ‘Add’ them).
Seconds later, you’re done! True statistics for the future. The real number of new visits etc.
Works like a new sextant made o’ gold. Yo ho!
