using filters

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone!

I would like to add a filter so my own visits to my website don't show in the statistics, and I know what I need to do once I find the filters. How do I get to them? Theoretically I know that I need to go to Analytics Settings - filter manager - create new filter, but am unable to locate these. No such thing under the "Settings" tab as far as I can see.

 

Please help?

 

Thank you,

Ann

Hello, Ann, and welcome to the AdWords community.

 

You should click on "Admin" (top right), then, on the Profiles tab click on your current profile (filters are applied at profile level, not at account level) and there they are. Fourth tab from the left.

Hello and welcome,

 

In addition to spot on response from Calin, I would like you to read the following reference explaining how you can exclude the internal traffic from Google Analytics:
