Google Analytics: how to not track my own visits?

i tend to do quite a bit of developing, tweaking and compulsively checking out my own live sites and since traffic isnt that high, i feel my own activity is skewing the actual activity. also affecting CTR etc ...

is there a way to block my own visits (other than turning off JS)? i read what sounded like a very long winded solution to this a while back.

wondering if anyone knows how to?

You can filter your IP address from the results...

look under "filters", and follow their syntax for the IP address to be filtered...

it's a no brainer...

But be aware that if you do not have a Static IP address, your IP address can change (if you reboot your router) and you will start recording your own hits again !

This happened to me so I got a Static IP address from my ISP. But it is $NZD 10 a month !

To overcome the dynamic ip connection problem perhaps you while developing could always add in the url &this=me and you can filter that out.
