I can’t remember what it was I was looking for at the time when I came across this website, GoatCloud Communications which answered a couple of niggly little questions. One which has been asked by a few, being how to filter out your own IP address from your analytics statistics in google
Assuming you have a Google Analytics account, below are the screen shots once logged in, for setting up a filter so your own IP address will be filtered out of your statistics.
- First ….
- Then ….
- Once + New Filter is press, you’ll need to …….
Good, now I’ve filtered out my own IP address from my statistics, but what if it changes? This was the other thing that niggled me. How come my IP address changes?
There seems to be two types, → a “static” and → a “dynamic” IP. A static IP does not change, whereas a dynamic IP does.
The Internet service provider used from home will probably give a “dynamic IP”, especially if it’s the same as the cable TV provider, therefore will change over time. This being the case, you’ll need to check up on your IP address now and then and change it if the need be, within the filter you’ve just set up.
Hope that helps anyone who didn’t and wanted to know.
