I don't want company traffic to show up in Sitecore analytics, because it skews goal scores & bounce rates. How do I prevent Sitecore from recording these visits, or how do I at least null-out their value?

  • I'm going to redirect this post to another answer, as the answer given and accepted here has serious side effects. Company users will be identified as robots with a 60 second session timeout, and all xDB features and commerce features will stop working for them. – Mark Cassidy Aug 28 '18 at 9:07

You can do that by including the company IP range in "excludedIPAddresses" section of Sitecore.Analytics.ExcludeRobots.config file (Or by creating a patch config):

<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
    <excludedIPAddresses> -

Requests from these IPs will be ignored completely by xDB


You could disable tracking of requests from your servers in the

\App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Analytics.ExcludeRobots.config file in such way:

 <!--List of ip addresses of search engines. Requests from following addresses will be ignored by Analytics.
Supported values and formates:
IP address, e.g.;
IP range, e.g. -;
Subnet, e.g. 10.2.3.*
