Stop Blogger Counting On Owners Visits in Analytics

If you have a Blogspot blog, you do not need to install any third party analytics to count the traffic coming to your blog (though I recommend the use of Google analytics). Blogger has a default traffic analyzer which checks the traffic to your website. It can tell you the visitors location, and the top landing pages with popular keywords. One issue with Blogger stats checker is the inefficiency to identify the owner.

By default, Blogger stats count the visit of the blog owner too. Though it makes sense, we can tell it to do not count our traffic to our blogs. By telling don't count your visits, you get a clear picture of actual readers. To do this, follow the instructions provided below.

How to Configure Blogger Stats to don't Count Your Visits

  1. Login to Blogspot Account

  2. Click on the Blog listed in the dashboard

  3. Click on Stats
    stop tracking my visit to Blogspot site and be anonymous

  4. Click on the link Don't track your own pageviews
    make your visit anonymous

  5. Select the radio button don't track my pageviews and click on Save
    make your visit to make hidden

Now onwards Blogspot will not count your visit to your site. It is not an irreversible change. You can always change the don't track my pageviews option to track my pageviews option by following the steps mentioned above.

  1. Delete Google Web Search History From Your Account
  2. Enable Google SafeSearch Lock
  3. List of Best Free LAN Messengers & Download Links
