Exclude your computer from Google Analytics results

I found this nifty little script from Justin Cutroni’s blog Analytics Talk that’s used to remove a single computer’s traffic from your Analytics results.  So like if you are running a site and accessing it all the time from your machine, but you don’t want to exclude others in your company (the same IP address) from the traffic reports, try this script.

It puts a cookie on the machine that accesses it – your enter your own text for the cookie, then go into Google Analytics and create a custom filter that checks for your cookie. Very simple (not that I could have come up with this!) and an elegant solution.
