Worried about your Google Analytics data being skewed by your staff’s usage of your own website? If so, set-up a custom filter to exclude those IP addresses.

Please note that these instructions are for websites using the “asynchronous tracking code”. Google Analytics Logo

To exclude a specific IP address:

  1. Log in to Google Analytics
  2. Click on “Filter Manager” (bottom right of page)
  3. Click on “+ Add Filter” (top right of table)
  4. Enter your filter name – e.g. London office
  5. Select “custom filter” and “exclude”
  6. Select “Visitor IP address” for filter field
  7. Enter the IP you wish to include for the filter pattern field (ensure you follow the “regular expression” formatting instructions detailed below)
  8. Select which website profiles you wish to apply this filter to
  9. Save the newly created filter

If you’ve followed these steps your filter should kick-in within 24 hours.

Remember to enter your IP address(es) using regular expressions. This means that an IP address which would normally look like:

192.35.19.092 should be entered as 192.35.19.092

If you wish to exclude a range of IP addresses use this tool as regular expressions get a bit tricky when a range of IP addresses are involved.
