We have employees that access the company website using their smartphones. The smartphones connect with different ip addresses depending on if they are on a wifi access point, the 3G and 4G networks of AT&T and Verizon. We also have users who access the site from home. There is a dropdown menu at the top of our site that reads "employees" and has links to employee related content.

So how do you filter this traffic from the website?

1 Answer 1


Using cookies would be the most likely solution. If the employees section is password-protected, then set it whenever anyone logs-in. If not, you may have to make them visit the site via a hidden url that sets it.

The cookie will remain even if their ip changes.

If a cookie is set, you can then add additional information about the user to your Analytics code that you can filter from your analytics results.
