    I have one site that has like 70 views this month, I go and check where they are coming from and 30 of them are me. I have always had this problem, and have yet to figure out how to stop it.

    I once saw a toolbar for firefox that was suppose to stop it, but it didn't work, I tried adding a filter, but I couldn't get that to work either.

    How do you do it?

    Thanks.

    Well one thing I use is hide my ass. It's a free proxy add-on for firefox and google chrome. It should help you for this reason. ;)

    Thanks, I will try the IP filter again. I had two filters in place, but both had the wrong IP. I updated them and hopefully they will work. Thanks, guys.

    Yeah the easiest way is to add your IP address to the GA filters.
