Support » Plugin: Jetpack by » Stats are showing my own visits

  • Resolved carolaclavo


    Hi there,

    I just started a self-hosted blog a few days ago and everything is running fine but I’ve seen Stats are counting my own visits although I’m logged in. How can I fix this? I’m sure no one is visiting the blog more than 10 times a day, only me 😀

    If anytime someone pays a visit I’d like to know, though!

    The blog is here, thanks for having a look at this problem. Is just a personal project to learn WordPress.

    You can change this setting by clicking on “Configure”, under the Stats module in the Jetpack menu:

    You will then be able to exclude all logged in users from the Stats.

    Thank you!

    This is my configuration, I think it is correct. Thank you very much for taking the time to check it. Maybe I am having real visitors after all and I see those visitors coming, not my own visits. I’m always logged in, editing or publishing contents when I visit my own blog.

    I had a look at your Site Stats, and I noticed the large amount of visits coming from “WordPress Dashboard” on March 21, 22, and 23. This referrer indicates that the visits were most likely yours.

    Is it possible that you were using your browser’s incognito mode to access your site, thus visiting your site as a logged out user when opening your site in a new window?

    WordPress Dashboard doesn’t appear among your referrers in the last few days, so the problem is most likely fixed now. If it happens again, I would recommend that you clear your browser cache and cookies, and restart it.

    Hello again,

    I had a problem with cookies in my Safari so I deleted a few of them but I don’t think there is a relation with my WordPress site (I didn’t touch any of them related to Worpress).

    What I did lately is deleting an earlier version of my blog that I started on before I decided to export the contents and use a self-hosted WP.

    I’ll follow your advice if it happens again. Thank you very much for your kind help and assistance.
