Trouble creating remarketing list to matching URLs

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Adwords says "New! Use one remarketing tag for all your lists. Place a single tag across your entire site, and create remarketing lists based on your site URLs."

So I'm trying to do this. I've linked Adwords to Analytics, added the extra line to my tracking code, waited a week or so, and I can see that the "All vistors (system-defined)" list has list size of 14,000.
So now I want to create a list of visistors for just certain pages of the website.
I click "+ Remarking List", select "Visitors of a page", and add a value to match to the URL.
When I click Estimate List Size, I always get "The list is empty" no matter what rules I set.
Any ideas? Am I doing it wrong? Do I have to create the empty list and wait for it to fill up?
Thanks!

Hi kaspesla,

You're doing it right. It takes a while for the list to populate.

Even if you're filtering the main list, it still takes awhile. I usually wait until the next day to check.

So it's not simply filtering the current list. It's starting a new empty list?
