Google Analytics Ip filtering

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Good evening,

 

I've a question.
If on anonymized GA website, i put a filter to exclude my own IP adress in this way xx.x.xxx.0 will exclude only my IP ?
I ask that, because until yesterday, inserting my normal IP into the custom filter "equal to", it didn't work properly, but after inserting instead of this IP form xx.x.xxx.xxx, the form xx.x.xxx.0 seems to work in the right way, but i have the suspect that now it's not excluding only my IP.

 

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi @Piero N :-)

you can filter views via country, region, city

or you can create custom reports and apply filters within the report itself,

to filter, region, metro, city, country etc

 

eta.. there is a list of View filter fields available here:

Hi @Piero N :-)

It wont exclude just your IP.

 

The alternative (& imho better) thing to do in these types of instances is to use a free browser addon such as
Da Vinci Tools, which will allow you to log into GA and block your visits from being tracked via a simple

button at the top right of the GA interface. No filters required.

Thank you for the replay,
So does actually, the xx.x.xxx.0 format exclude an IP range or something ?
My problem cannot unfortunately be solved with a tool like that, cause i'm usual to visit the website from firefox, opera and chrome aswell, in order to perform some tests.

What will be the better solution to this issue  ?

There are a few solutions

 

You can use the GA Browser opt out addon (will need to install it for all browsers)

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

 

You can use something like ublock or adblock or noscript for each browser

and as per this thread
https://superuser.com/questions/278590/is-there-a-way-to-disable-a-specific-js-script-from-a-specifi...

 

Or..

 

you can setup a page that only you have access to, and also setup a custom dimension

at the user level, visit the page in each browser and then use an exclude filter to block

that custom dimension. This will need to be revisited each time you clear cookies for 

a browser.

Yes.. more info available on that here:

For example include only italian traffic.
