If you are using a WordPress plugin like Monster Insights to integrate Google Analytics with your blog, by default Google Analytics doesn’t track your own website visits IF you are logged in to your blog as an admin or editor.
But as soon as you logout of WordPress, Google Analytics no longer excludes your own website visits, making your traffic stats inaccurate.
But worry not my friends, because I have a quick and easy way to block your own visits from your Google Analytics account.
Watch the video below to learn more. 🙂
To get started open up the Chrome browser and search for the extension Block Yourself From Analytics, or you can go straight to the page by clicking this link.
Next, click the ‘Add to Chrome’ button.
Now select ‘Add Extension’.
In the top right corner of the Chrome browser click the faded grey icon next to your profile picture icon and select ‘Options’.
Next, enter your domain name as shown in the image below. Press the ‘Add’ button and Save.
And that’s it!
You can now visit your blog using the Chrome browser without being tracked by Google Analytics, even if you’re not logged in. 🙂
