Want To Ensure The Quality Of Your Website? – Okay, Listen To Semalt!
Oliver King, the Semalt Customer Success Manager, says that many people believe that excluding themselves from Google Analytics is not important, but it is not so. Instead, it will give you a sense of safety as a website owner or a webmaster. In recent weeks, I have tried a lot of ways to ensure the quality and overall performance of my website. You should keep in mind the importance of Opt-out Browser Add-ons, Exclusion via ISP or IPs, as well as Opt-out via cookies.
Opt-out Browser Add-on
Thanks to Google as the company has created and developed the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-ons to make our work easier. It would not be wrong to say that this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to begin blocking your own views and the add-ons available in the Google Analytics. You would have to pay attention to the available desktop options and browsers and should never go with the Internet Explorer. With that said, I have some caveats with this technique. One of my major problems is with the add-ons; I want to enable them to accept the native traffic both from the mobile devices and desktops. So far, I have not been able to do that, but I am still testing a number of techniques. Plus, the add-ons will exclude you from all the Google Analytics reports because you are trying to make big changes.
Exclude via ISP/IP
To exclude through ISP or IP, you should log into your Google Analytics account and click on the admin option. Here you have to select the account from the drop-down option and click on the filters button. Make sure you have excluded all the unknown and unfamiliar files from this list; otherwise, you would have to face some problems. Let me here tell you that this method is not as effective as the above method; however, it is still used by a large number of webmasters the world over and is easy to implement. An advantage of this method is that you can exclude the IPs and ISPs from any part of the world, and don't need to switch on your own computer system or laptop necessarily. It also makes it easy for you to filter the domain names, ensuring the quality of your web traffic.
Opt-out via cookies
I have recently settled my website's cookies to create relevant data because it is must for all websites. It can work on all types of mobile devices and desktops, giving the best and most wonderful results. Google often updates its policies, terms, and conditions to make sure they comply with their advanced configuration settings and as per the standards of Google Analytics. Let me here tell you that my website is relatively static, which means it does not have multiple subdomains and is easy to access from any mobile or computer device. I recently changed UA-XXXX-Y in my Google Analytics ID and got very good results. Now I am happy to see that it brings a lot of quality traffic to my website and all of the views come from original people, not the bots.
