Blogger Stats - Censor Your Pageviews
Blogger Stats is a 'real-time' analysis of your blog traffic. It should, by definition, include all visits to your blog - even your own. This can be misleading and tends to inflate the 'true' visitor figures. Blogger realised this and now provides an option for you to censor the figures, eliminating your visits.
This is great - but, it needs to be explained that it is on a per-browser basis. That means, if you use more than one browser, you'll have to re-set this blocking feature for each. It's a ten-second job, if that.
As yet, one feature I would like to see, and don't, is a 're-set' option - to clear already gathered data and re-start the count. Maybe one day.
