Clickfunnel and subdomains how to filter them correctly in different views?

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hello

 

I am implementing clickfunnel and my website. Both have the same analytics script installed.

So i would like to track both in Analytics and have a view called "Only clickfunnel" and a view called "without clickfunnel"

 

I tried to implement the filters in each view but doesn't works. The clickfunnel hostname is www.mywebsite.clickfunnel.com

So i simply create a filter which exclude mywebsite.clickfunnel.com for the view "without clickfunnel" and a filter which include only mywebsite.clickfunnel.com for the other view.

 

But nothing happened Smiley Sad

In the view "withoutclifunnel" i still see the clickfunnel data

Meanwhile in the other view i do not see any data.

 

What is wrong?

 

Thank you

Hi :-)
Filters are not retroactive, they wont filter out historical data already reported within a View.

New Views usually take 24-48hrs to start showing data, and do not populate with historical data from other Views.
Usually rather than an exclude hostname filter, the general accepted practice is to add an include hostname filter for your domain name....to only display reported data for your domain

Same would apply to the View for clickfunnel data..an include hostname filter to include hostname that end in clickfunnel.com would be applied

 

Real time reporting can take a couple of hours to sync with changes, so I would leave it for an hour or so.. then step through and complete a test to see if you are able to see your activity in the real time reporting.

Hi Niccolò,

 

I'm getting a sense that something might be wrong with the filter configurations. What exact conditions did you give in each filter configuration?

 

For Clickfunnel traffic: Exclude >> Traffic to the hostname >> Equal to / begin with / end with / contain >> mywebsite.clickfunnel.com ?

For non-Clickfunnel traffic: Include only >> Traffic to the hostname >> Equal to / begin with / end with / contain >> mywebsite.clickfunnel.com ?

 

Please clarify.

 

Karthik.

Hello Bronwyn

 

Yes i agree but i was checking inside the real time audience and i was seeing traffic into the Nonfunnel view (showing traffic from the funnel) Smiley Sad

Hello

 

I actually tried first with "begin with" and then with "contain" but also with "equal to" and nothing happened! Smiley Sad

In the "nofunnel view" i still see the funnel and in the "only funnel view" i see nothing. (talking about realtime audience)

 

Thanks

Hi Niccolò,

 

Good to know. Your Clickfunnel hostname seems to include a "www.", so I think the match type matters. Let us know how it goes.
