Blocking Requests

Here are some situations where you might want to block some requests:

  • Blocking ads and other third-party content (so the analysis focuses on just your website)
  • Blocking analytics

Note: while this will make your analysis results more consistent, blocking requests also means that the experience is less like that of a real user.

How to block requests

1. Set up a new monitored page, or click the "Edit" button in the top right corner for an existing page.

2. Open the "Request Blocking" section and click "New config"

3. Fill in the form

Each line contains one request blocking rule. By default requests are blocked if the the rule appears in the URL. If the rule starts and ends with a slash a regular expression match is used instead.

4. Click "Create" and then save your monitored page
