Filtering Yourself Out Of AdSense Impressions

Google AdSense tracks impressions of everyone who visits a page even the owners/maintainers of the page. They do not provide a mechanism to tell them to ignore you, which differs from their Analytics tool.

The only way to not be counted is to not display the ads when you're viewing your own pages. Here are some thoughts on how to do it.

If you are using a content management system, or CMS, set it up so that it doesn't display the ads to your user account.

If your site is done in a programming language like perl or php, but is not CMS, you can accomplish the same goal by not showing the ads to your IP address or login (if you use a login system.)
