Google Analytics is a leading website statistics service provider. It provides accurate, relatively up-to-date information on the visitors to your website, where they are coming from, and what they are accessing.
Answer: We currently do not know of a way to do this. You may be asking this for a few different reasons, but whatever the reason, the answer is always “it’s not important”, so just don’t worry about it.

If you are getting so little traffic that your own traffic actually affects your statistics, then you just need more traffic. Try some SEO.

Remember, there is a reason Google does things the way it does, and it usually makes sense, so don’t question it. Labels in GMail may be an exception to that rule.
The truth about traffic monitoring is that it’s not as valuable as most people will want you to believe. Yes, that’s right. You should keep an eye on it, but don’t pay more than 5 minutes of attention to it each month.
