We have a members portal called and when the user sign in, they go thru and once verified the traffic is redirected to


Hence there is traffic from both these hostnames. I have created filters to ignore this type of self referral traffic, yet I see sessions from when I search by Hostname.


The self referral filter helped such that there are no more referral traffic from but ingeneral when I check the traffic by hostname - I see a lot of traffic from


My Question is whether I should ignore these traffic from hostname or domain or include it inorder to determine the actual number of session from our users to our member portal.


Let me know if I need to explain with examples and numbers to explain better my issue.
