WP-Admin pages show up in Google Analytics results

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In looking at my Site Content Pages report, I am seeing pages that look like WP-Admin pages (can't post examples?).  I have no idea why WP-Admin pages are showing in my stats?  How do I eliminate this?   If I look at the User Flow, it seems that at least some of this comes after a page on my blog.

 

Web site is a WordPress self hosted blog (on GoDaddy).

Hi :-) Thank you :-)
Which admin pages are being tracked? Sometimes login pages and post preview pages etc will sometimes be tracked.

I may be wrong but also from memory, the plugin also offers the option of tracking logged in and non logged in users (guests) 
For help with 3rd party plugins usually you are best to approach the plugin creator on their support thread on wordpress.org or via other means
if they indicate they have a support forum or similar.
They are the most knowledgeable about their product and it's behaviour and will be able to tell you if its a bug or expected behaviour or a configuration/installation issue.

Hi Linda :-)

How has the tracking code been installed?
Manually via editing theme files, or using a plugin for installing Google Analytics or some other method?

The tracking code was put into the plugin for Google Analytics. I really don't have access to edit my theme so have to do it all with plugins. Hope this helps to identify the problem :-)

My travel blog is at www.retiredandtravelling.com . I am using the "Google Analytics Dashboard for WP" v4.9.1 . I noticed they just pushed 4.9.1.1 (which I just did) - and I am still seeing the WP-Admin pages.

Thank you so much for the dialogue. I will follow up with the Plugin creator and see what parameter on dozens of pages I may have missed :-)
