Exclude pageviews from certain IP addresses

Koko Analytics comes with a setting to exclude certain WordPress user roles from being counted. This will ensure that no visits, pageviews or events are counted when a logged-in user with any of the selected roles views your site.

If you visit your website while not being logged-in, the plugin will still count your visit though. You can address this by adding a small PHP snippet to your site that prevents the Koko Analytics script from being loaded based on the visitor’s IP address.

Here’s what that looks like:

 * Plugin Name: Koko Analytics: Do not count certain IP addresses
add_filter( 'koko_analytics_load_tracking_script', function() {
    $ip_address = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
    $excluded_ip_addresses = array(
    if (in_array($ip_address, $excluded_ip_addresses, true)) {
        return false;

    return true;
});Code language: PHP (php)

Modify the snippet above to include your IP address and then save it as /wp-content/plugins/koko-analytics-exclude-ips.php. You can then activate it from your WP Admin > Plugins page.

If you would like to see this become a setting on the Koko Analytics settings page instead, please vote for this feature on our ideas board here.
