Avoid self referrer


How is possible to avoid my own site to be recorded as a referrer for the viewed pages in the “Referrers” pane ? I already have these stats in the “Pages” pane, so it’s not needed in the other one. http://cl.ly/1APS

Thank’s ! Thibaut

Properly configured Mint should not track the local domain as an external referrer. Your screenshot is too closely cropped to illustrate your question.

Where is Mint installed? On a subdomain? What domain is it tracking? (use abbreviations if you don’t want to publicly name the site, eg. wc.com or dat.be?) If the server is misreporting the installation location to Mint it may get confused about what is a local referrer and what is external.

My mint install suddenly started tracking myself visiting as well. It had not up untill now. I haven’t changed any configurations or installed any new peppers. I’m not accesing from the local server however.

I thought this was a related issue.
