Create paid and organic segment in GA[ Edited ]
September 2016 - last edited September 2016
I'd like to create a custom segment to capture two traffic mediums and exclude all others.
The two traffic mediums:
Basically I want to see traffic that comes through Google Adwords, Bing Ads (i'm tagging with utm_medium=cpc) plus organic search traffic from Google, Yahoo, Bing and possibly some minor engines.
I've double checked that my paid traffic all has medium=cpc and my organic traffic all has medium=organic assigned. They do, no problems there.
I tried setting up a custom segment using Custom Segment>Traffic Sources>Medium>Matches REGEX>cpc | organic That resulted in 0% of my traffic being returned. I tried both users and sessions.
Has anyone ever been able to set up a segment to capture either any two mediums of traffic? Maybe you got medium=email and medium=direct instead of what I'm looking for, but you have the REGEX that works in this context.
Re: Create paid and organic segment in GA
using a user / session segment where a single condition is:
Include Medium Regex cpc|organic
Should definately do the trick - check the regex in acqusition reports - if it still does not return results > 0 then check how the traffic is tagged, typos in regex or similar.
Hope it helps!
