I’m new to Piwik, this is my first post so please excuse me if it is a silly question.
Two sites that I run are performing poorly in Google. I’ve installed Piwik so that I can monitor them better. I’d like to exclude my own ip address so that I don’t show as a visitor. Is this the correct thing to do (from the FAQ)?
To exclude all traffic from a given IP or IP range, log in Piwik as the Super User. Click on Settings > Websites. Below the list of websites, you will find the option to specify "Global list of Excluded IPs". You can define a given IP address, or IP ranges (132.4.3.* or 143.2.*.* for example) to be excluded from being tracked on all websites. Each Piwik admin user can also specify the list of IPs or IP ranges to exclude for specific websites.
I was just worried incase there would be some effect of doing this that I haven’t anticipated.
Thanks for the advice,
