Squarespace Analytics - Excluding IP Addresses in Squarespace Analytics


Question

As you we all know Google Analytics allows you to exclude visits based on IP addresses so staff visits and/or visits from the offices of the client, or even mine for testing purposes, will not be part of the analytics.

It would be great if Squarespace offers that option as well.

Some smaller clients of mine do not need Google Analytics and are very happy with the analytics offered by Squarespace, but because they are smaller companies, their visits to the site, or even my visits to check something, are skewing the data somewhat.

If I can exclude those visits, the data will be a better representation of ACTUAL visitors.

Shouldn't be that hard I would think?

Anyone any thoughts?

If clients are using the built in Squarespace Analytics they can exclude their own visits by logging in to their site before visiting it.

The best way to do this is to visit account.squarespace.com and access the site from there. Squarespace Analytics ignores all site owner and contributor activity by default, so if you always log in first your visits will not register whilst you remain logged in.

When you’re logged out, your activity appears the same as any other visitor.

Nice suggestion @paul2009 but I can not give 10-15 staff access. Chances someone screws up something is just too high.
