I added my website to the referral exclusion list, but I'm still seeing it coming through as a referral. 

 

Does anyone know how to stop this from happening

Hi,

 

Returning visitors who return as direct will still have your website set as their traffic source, because GA is using the last non direct click attribution model. These will slowly disappear as they reach the campaign timeout (6 months by default). Hope this helps.
