Exclude the "job seekers"
I'm new to the Google Analytics community. I started using it a few weeks ago and managed to find some answers to my questions.
However, since I'm new to this, I just want to make sure that my segments are correct.
What I want is to exclude people who have visited the jobs pages. These pages all start with /jobs/... !
My website is in 4 languages.
So I've done this :
Behaviour : Sessions > or = to 1
Sequences : filter l exclude l users l sequence start l any user interaction
STEP 1 : Page > matches regex > /(fr|en|nl|de)/jobs/
is that correct?
Re: Exclude the "job seekers"
First we need to know what you want to exclude :
1. All sessions (whether or not they visited /jobs/ ) from Users that may have visited those pages in some session e.g. If I canme to your site and on the 9th session/ visit went to /jobs/ would you want to exclude the previous 8 sessions and all sessions after the visit?
2. Just the sessions in which the user went to /jobs
if it's 1, then you'll create a user based session (whiich can only be used over a 90 day date range); if it's 2 then you'll want to create a session based segment.
In your example you've made it more complicated than it needs to be. You don't need a sequence based segment, iyou can simply go to advanced and use Exclude>> (then either sessions or users based on above)>>page as the dimension and use the regex you have above or simply use contains and a filter pattern of /jobs/
Hope that helps!
