Here's what I do.

I copied my home page to a new one that exists on my
computer only.
When I log onto the net, it is this dummy page that shows up.
I have a link there to the real online page in case I want to check it.

That way, my hits only show if I'm actually browing my own site for some reason. -Larry

Do you mean your own log files or someone elses?

If you want to hide your IP in other peoples log files then you would need to use a proxy. If it's your own logs then, yes you can but the method depends on your webserver software.
