It might be covered somewhere but I can’t find it but does anyone know whether the number of shop views that show up in Shop Stats include when I look at my own shop? I got over excited this morning as I had 103 views yesterday, but then wondered how many of them were me updating listings and collating Pinterest boards.
Yes your shop views (in folksy stats) will include you looking at your item pages. If you sign up for google analytics you can add a filter so that it excludes you viewing yourself in the data it shows (however I’m still working on finding a way of getting it to filter out all the web bots/ ghost views so that I only see real views).
Just be aware with google analytics that if you use a mobile device to look at your shop it doesn’t always get excluded by the filters as the IP address changes.
