Ignoring External Referrers

An external referrer is any site that links to your Confluence instance. Each time someone clicks on the external link, your Confluence site can record the click as a referral. By default, Confluence records the number of hits made to a page from any link on an external site. If you turn this option off, Confluence will not record the hits.

To ignore external referrers:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
  2. Choose 'Manage Referrers' in the left-hand panel.
  3. Deselect 'Record External Referrers'.
