I can’t seem to find a way to filter out my own (and my colleagues’) visits to my blog from the stats results. We hit it many times for testing before I launch a promotional email blast. I don’t want to see those hits in my metrics.
The following are not reflected in your stats:
Visits to uploaded documents and files
GoogleBot and other search engine spiders
Your own visits to your blog (for logged-in users of public blogs only)http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/
I read that before I posted this question. Then I tested it. Each time I visited my blog in a separate session, it picked up one more hit on my stats. So for some reason it doesn’t “see” me and filter me out.
