We recently discovered that not only had someone copied our entire site design and code, they hadn’t even bothered to change the tracking code, so their hits were being counted in our Google Analytics account, which was making a mess of our reports.
The workaround was fairly simple, all we had to do is add a custom ‘include’ filter on the profile settings page within Analytics.
The code you need
Simply add a ‘Custom filter’ with the following settings:

At the end of 2008, it was becoming evident that where we were, while lovely, was being rapidly outgrown (especially given some of [...]
We are currently looking into setting up an internship programme early next year, which would take place at our expanding studio in Chichester, West Sussex, UK. At present, we are conducting a feasibility study on this subject, and would therefore love to hear from anyone who’d be interested in working with a vibrant, dynamic team [...]
