Does Google Analytics Count Multiple Clicks form the Same User as Different events?

Say for example I want to track the number of clicks that a link called "book online" is clicked. So I use google tag manager to deploy such a tag. However during site development I myself may click the link multiple times to check if its working etc... So I dont want to see these double clicks as I want to get an accurate idea of how many normal people are actually clicking the link. Does GA count my repeat clicks? If so how can I work around it? 


Thanks

Yes. GA tracks your internal link clicks.

 

Try using 'Exclude internal traffic': https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1034840?hl=en
