It is not uncommon for it take up to 24 hours for your website's statistics to show up on your Google Analytics dashboard as it takes time for the search engine to crawl your site and pick up the Analytics Account Number. 

And that is it! To make sure that your activity on your website is hidden so you can get an idea of the real traffic, you can set up a filter to exclude your IP address.
