When you are tracking yourself with Google Analytics, you want to be sure that the traffic you are seeing is coming from actual customers and not from all the times you have gone to admire your site. In order to do that, you need to exclude your IP address with a filter. Here are the directions on how to do that. If you need more help, please see the video below where he he walks through the whole process:
1) Go to the main GA dashboard and click on “Admin” at the top right.
2) Then, choose the correct account from the list. (May be just your account if you are only following yourself.)
3) Then click on “Filters” tab, and choose “+ New Filter” and create a name for it, something like “Block Myself”.
4) Then go down a little further where “Exclude” is the default and use the next drop down menu to choose “traffic from the IP addresses” and the next drop down will be “that are equal to”.
5) Then enter your IP address in the boxes below. If you’re not sure of your IP address, just google “my ip address” and your personal address will come up at the top. Hit “save” and you’re all set!
