I am trying to create a Filter View by excluding a URL. Is this possible and if so, can someone lead me in the right direction as to how to create it!
Create a filter view excluding a URL
Hi, Kelly B,
Yes, it's possible create a view that excludes a certain URL. Say you want to exclude the URL "http://www.example.com". You would then create your filter in GA by selecting "Add Filter" > Create new Filter > Custom > Exclude > Hostname, and then enter the URL you want to exclude (eg. "www.example.com"). Then verify and save it. That filters out ALL traffic where the hostname is "www.example.com". If you want to exclude only subfolders in that domain (eg. www.example.com/filter/this), then you would change your Exclude type to "Request URI", and you would use the value "/filter/this".
Post back here if you have any questions or problems.
Hope this helps.
