Clarification on Request URL filter

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, I want to make sure I have this correct. I have banner ads and job advertisements on a job site. I want to keep referral traffic coming from this site in general, but exclude traffic that comes specifically from the page containing the job advert, i.e. keep traffic from potential customers clicking the banner but exclude traffic from job-seekers.


For this advert:


In the Filter Pattern field of Exclude Request URL, would I put "/job-board/job/49518/junior-full-stack-developer-at-nearst/"?

You need to use the Campaign Referral Path field if you want to exclude traffic from that referrer page.
You can test if it works by clicking Verify Filter at the bottom of the filter settings page.

Let me know if you have questions.
