Hi soja,

Welcome to the OpenX community forums!

Consider a host an “alias” host and not record the links to this domain as “outlinks”

By default all links to domains other than the current domain are considered outlinks. If you have multiple domains and don’t want to consider links to these websites as ‘outlinks’ you can add this new JavaScript variable:

[...]
piwik_url = ‘http://yourwebsite/piwik/piwik.php’;
piwik_hosts_alias = ["hostname1.com", "hostname2.com"]; // the current tracked website is added to this array anyway
piwik_log(piwik_action_name, piwik_idsite, piwik_url);
[...]

I need to be able to do this as well but either I’m not understanding the answer or you didn’t understand the question.

I have a site that I administer and I am constantly on it adding/editing content. I need to be able to exlcude my visits to this site so they aren’t included in the stats that Piwiki reports.

phpMyVisites managed this by excluding my ip address from being recorded. I don’t see an option for this in Piwiki.

Now if the answer provided above addresses this issue then please forgive my ignorance but could someone explain it in plain english.

I cannot use this if it does not exclude my visits from the stats as it would render the statistics invalid and useless by padding the number of visits and the time spent as I will spend hours updating content.

Thank you in advance for clarifying this issue.
