Stop Blogger Counting On Owners Visits in Analytics

If you are using blogger as your blog platform, to count the traffic to your blog you do not need to install any third party analytics (though I recommend the use of Google analytics). Blogger has a default traffic analyzer which checks the traffic to your website, country from which visitors came, the major landing pages with popular keywords. One issue with blogger stats checker is, it counts your own visit to total traffic. Though it makes sense, we can tell it to do not count our traffic to our blogs. So it will give exact view of genuine traffic originated and help to make our future plans with this true stats by making all your visits to your blog anonymous. To tell how to stop counting our traffic, follow the instructions provided below.

Tell Blogger to Stop Counting Your Own Pageviews in Stats
  1. Login to Blogspot Account

  2. Click on the Blog listed in the dashboard

  3. Click on Stats

    make your visit anonymous

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

You can always change the don't track my pageviews option to track my pageviews option by following the steps mentioned above.
