Why Should You Stop Logged In Users Tracking?
Google Analytics is used to track how your visitors are interacting with your site.
Tracking your own visits will skew your Google Analytics data. So, it is always better to ensure that your own visits are not tracked by Google Analytics.
There are many ways to stop tracking your own visits. For example, IP address filtering. Creating an IP address filter whitelists your IP address and stop tracking visits originating from that specific IP. This way, it doesn’t discern the actual traffic with your own traffic.
However, the downside is it is only applicable if you’re using a static IP address, that doesn’t change.
A much better solution is to disable the logged in visitors tracking, so you can stop tracking your own visits on your WordPress website even if you’re using a dynamic IP.
