Sayonara, Snap Previews

WordPress | Friday, January 19th, 2007 | 10 years, 4 months ago

Since installing Snap Preview my web logs have been going haywire. I appears that my blog is visited every time someone hovers over a hyperlink. As you can see below, this creates tons of “direct” (non-referred) hits from Los Angeles which messes with my logs.

I’ve tried asking Snap support for help but they don’t seem to understand my problem. The feature is superfluous enough that I think my readers can live without it.

Arivaderci, Snap!

  1. If all the hits are coming from the same IP address in Los Angeles, can’t you just exclude that IP address from your hits?

  2. I’m giving your suggestion a shot. I’ve noticed presumably one hit per preview from inktomisearch.com so I’ve filtered those hits from my Google Analytics log analyses. Hopefully that’ll do that trick!

    I emailed Snap support after noticing the inflated logs but they didn’t seem to understand what I was asking of them. I’d requested an IP range to filter, not realizing Google Analytics allows me to filter by domain.
