To exclude your visits to your website so that your visits do not show and are not counted in your Analytics dashboard, follow these steps.
Visit your live website (by going directly to your domain name) so that when you login to your Analytics you will easily find your visits.
NOTE: you can easily see your IP address by doing a search in your browser for 'my ip address'.
NOTE: You can click on Tag to the right of either option, Unique ID or IP address. However, the analytics software recommends using UIDs instead of IP addresses whenever possible.
Changes to these filters in your Analytics dashboard can take up to several hours to take effect.
Filters are NOT retroactive, meaning they will only apply to visits that occur after the filter is created.
