Exclude internal traffic

Instructions for creating filters are in Create/manage view filters.

To exclude internal traffic from appearing in a report view, create a custom filter to exclude a specific IP address or a range of IP addresses.

Filter Type: Custom > Exclude

Filter Field: Visitor IP Address

Filter Pattern:

  • For example, if the single IP address is 176.168.1.1, then enter 176\.168\.1\.1.

  • For example, if the range of IP addresses is 176.168.1.1-25 and 10.0.0.1-14, then enter
    ^176\.168\.1\.([1-9]|1[0-9]|2[0-5])$|^10\.0\.0\.([1-9]|1[0-4])$
  • Remember to use regular expressions to enter an IP address.

For help finding the correct expression for your range of IP addresses, use the IP Address Range Tool.
