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
  • Blocking large images that are expected to change regularly and would cause unwanted alerts

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. Click "Show Advanced"
  3. Open the "Request Blocking" section and click "New"
