Is your Google Analytics clean? Use a filter

Google Analyitics Filters Are you throwing mud at your Google Analytics?

Do you use your website as a reference or resource?




Are you clicking on it many times a day to check information or read content or answer customer questions?

As as aside when I worked at the catalogue company, customers would phone into sales and ask a question about a product they had seen in the catalogue. The staff would read the same catalogue information back to them. It is funny how many customers want this service, it must be a sort of assurance that the information was correct and remove the barrier to the purchase.

I digress, the point being, if you are using your website as the reference or the business bible then you are contaminating that data on Google Analytics.

Google will register any visit to your site regardless of how it arrives.   When you or your team access the data it will look like there are lots of searches or direct links to obscure web pages. If you are investing in the digital marketing process, this will make the task harder by masking the true data and creating inflated figures. There is a simple solution filter out your visits.

Exclude your visits with Google Analytics filters

Google analytics filters can be found in the Admin tab on your analytics account.  But you must do this process while using the Internet from the location that you want to block.

Access that admin from the gear at the bottom left of the main analytics screen.  On the admin page is three columns, the filter tab is on the far right half-way down.

While I can do this is words, it is easier to show you so I have made a video the covers the process fully. See Below
