How to Save "Don't Track My Pageviews" for Blogger Stats setting

How to set "Don't Track My Pageviews" for Blogger and save that damn setting!

If you have a blogspot / blogger blog like this one, you may notice that you have an option called "Don't Track Your Own Pageviews" at your blogger dashboard.

However, if you have cookies protection turned on (on your browser), you will not be able to change and save the setting from the default "track your own pageviews" to the "don't track your own pageviews" option. You will find that the next time you click on it again, it will show that it is still at "track your own pageviews" option.

To overcome this if you are using Chrome, go to Settings>Advanced Settings>Privacy>Content Settings>Cookies>Manage Exceptions

Add the following to your exception list :-
[*.]blogspot.com
[*.]blogspot.sg (Depending on where you are from, it could be .something else)
[*.]blogger.com

After doing the above, go back to your dashboard and change the settings to "Don't track your own pageviews" and exit and go back again to confirm that the option has not switched back to the default "track your own pageviews".

  1. Thanks.. this is exactly what I saw searching for.

    I saw few other sites before coming to this one and almost all of them had a post just for the sake of it... just screenshots of how to do it ( which anyone do it without any geeky inputs)

  6. Hi, thanks for the post. I'm using Chrome and followed all your steps but it doesn't seem to have worked. Do you have any suggestion why this might be?

  7. Do you just add [*.]blogspot.com, or do you need to change the address to your blog address, e.g. username.blogspot.com ??

  9. Hey guys, for Firefox it's: Tools > Options > Content tab > Click Exceptions (to the right of the block pop-up windows check box) > Enter the urls and click allow for each. Hope that helps someone

  11. I don't have quite this problem. The "don't track my pageviews" option is saved as being selected, but it still tracks my pageviews anyway. Any solution to this problem?

    1. Safari (8.0) does not seem to have an exception list you can edit like in the Chrome browser, but you can work around the issue by doing the following:
      1.) Go to Safari -> Preferences... in the menu bar
      2.) navigate to the Privacy pane and take note of your current setting under the section "Cookies and website data"
      3.) Change the setting to "Always allow", exit the preferences window and close the browser (cmd+Q)
      4.) Open your browser, go to your blogger dashboard and change the setting to "Don't Track Your Own Pageviews"
      5.) When you are done you should go back to the Privacy settings (Safari -> Preferences... -> Privacy pane) and change the "Cookies and website data" setting back to what it was before

  15. Doesn't work on firefox. Blogger saves the don't track pageview, but ignores it anyway.
