18. How to prevent monitoring from affecting my website stats?

Most web analytics programs (webalizer, urchin, awstats etc) provide ways to exclude hits based on referer URL, or IP address.

  1. The easiest way would be to exclude hits from the referer URL (one that looks like ....../monitored-by-user-[your_username]) .
  2. If the program you use cannot exclude hits based on referer URL, you can exclude our IP addresses instead (check our network page or contact us for the full IP list). Since our IP addresses may change from time to time (due to system upgrades etc), you need to make sure you follow the changes.
