    Is there a way on HubPages stats or Google Analytics to discount your own page views for Hubs?

    I've been at HubPages little under a month now and am beginning to get my head around how most things seem to work. However one problem I'm having is finding out how many people are viewing my hubs. I've signed up to Google Analytics but is there a way to change the settings so it doesn't take into account my views?

    Any help would be much appreicated!

    I just go to the Google earnings.  The view are less but I can see that my pages are getting viewed and the information is very updated.

    Short of masking your IP address, disabling cookies, and turning off Javascript, I don't think you can hide your page views from HubPages stats.

    As for Google Analytics, here is a copy-and-paste from a post I made in the forums:

    1] Click on the Google Analytics link from your HubPages account
    2] Click on "Filter Manager" in the lower right of the screen that comes up
    3] Click on "+ Add Filter" in the right side of the next screen
    4] Choose a name for your filter
    5] Click on "traffic from the domains" and change it to "traffic from the IP addresses"
    6] Enter your IP address (http://www.whatismyip.com/)
    7] Select your HubPages profile and click on "Add ->"
    8] Save changes

    The easier way, in my opinion, is to download the opt-out plugin from Google: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .  This accomplishes the same thing without having to go through the above.
