Ok, under my "Referring Sites"

for just my stats yesterday, the biggest referrer was: intranet

so i click intranet, and i see the subdirectories and files... i.e.

/home/tools/cooltool.asp

etc...etc...

i put in a filter under this account as follows:

Filter Type: Custom Filter

Exclude (radio button selected)

Filter Field: Referral

now, i have tried 2 different approaches to this field below.

(1st try) Filter Pattern: intranet/*
(2nd try) Filter Pattern: intranet*

I have evaluated them both after a few days of processing, and they still keep showing "intranet" as a referrer...

what am i doing wrong?

Do you have tagged links from your intranet that tag the campaign source as "intranet", or were you just using "intranet" to hide your site url on webmasterworld? If you are tagging the links, then try filtering on Campaign Source instead of on referal.

Also, wouldn't it be better to filter based on IP for your internal IP range? Surely not all internal visits are coming from the link on the intranet- many are probably direct.
