Excluding Internal IP Traffic

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I’m looking to exclude some internal business traffic (via IP address) from our analytics account – the process seems fairly simple.

 

However, if I create these filters, will my analytics account also keep an unfiltered view?

 

I don’t want to go-ahead with an action that creates a permanent change, as I ideally want to see both variables.

 

Cheers, Mike

Hi :-)
Create a new View and apply the filter to the new View only.
Filters do not work on historical data and new or copied Views do not populate with historical data.
In this way, you have the original view with all the historical data
and the new View will tracking going forward only with the 'clean' data.

I am also looking for blocking my Internal Traffic. I have tried \. and | Method to include multiple Ips, but that is not a valid Ip and IPs are not getting saved.

Kindly Help.

Hi @Shantam D :-)

You can use a custom exclude filter that uses a regular expression.

How many IPs are you wanting in the include filter?
