I’m the proud owner of a new portfolio website thanks to Webflow’s excellent 21 Day Portfolio course. Huzzah! At the end of the course, McGuire showed how to set up Google Analytics. The instructions were great!
However, I’ve found my own traffic from my webflow.io subdomain is included in the reports with the custom domain stuff. I reached out to Webflow support to see if there’s any way to filter this out, to which they sent instructions to create pre-defined hostname exclusion filters in Google Analytics. Trouble is, McGuire set us up on the new Google Analytics 4! There seems to be no way to add filters like you used to in the traditional “Universal Analytics”.
Does anyone know how to exclude webflow.io subdomain traffic from Google Analytics 4? I’m the kind of person who publishes very often and preview results when I do. Ideally, I’d like to run my own visits on the webflow.io domain and leave my custom domain untouched for tracking.
I’m sure this is in the works, but it would be great if Webflow University would cover something like this. I’m sure with people setting up GA4 tracking they’ll want to know how to remove their own traffic from said reports too.
I saw this related topic from another Webflowian but it seems I’m too far down the road to take advantage of this solution.
