How to group Results by filter

Hello,

 

Problem: Hundreds of pages that need to grouped out by page title and can't use the "Include" function for multiple results.

 

Example: Lets say I have 300 pages that include a product name (that are different every time)

I want to include group 1,2,3

  1. Company | Support | Car Product (15 different variations)
  2. Company | Support | Truck Product (7 different variations)
  3. Company | Support | Motorcycle Product (9 different variations)

Without having to "exclude 269 pages"

  • Company | Support | All other Products (269 other product pages)

I haven't found a good way of doing this. So any workarounds or tips that you can offer would be amazing. (Even if they are "You should have known this type of advice." 

 

-Pete

Assuming your URLs look a bit like this:

company/support/$productname

 

One, slightly longwinded approach would be to create a regex which looks a bit like this:

company/support/(productname|productname2|productname3)

 

This kind of expression, used in a filter, would only include hits which match the rule. Hard to give more detail without knowing more about the URL structure. Try using regexpal.com to test out stuff.
