Filters on a subdomain for specific pages

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm trying to create a view for a sub domain that contains just 10 pages in it.
The client has a sub domain for all of his landing pages and wants to create a view that shows only those 10.


I've created a custom include filter for each one of the pages, using request URI.

In the filter pattern I've tried both /page_name_here pattern and .*page\_name\_here.* pattern

In both cases i get 0 traffic on my view - what should i do/try in order to solve this?
*the pages url doesn't have a common structure

Hi,

The custom include filter with /page_name_here should work, make sure you enter it exactly as it is tracked in Behavior -> Site Content -> All Pages. You can check if the filter works using the Verify option at the bottom of the add filter page. Hope this helps.

Hi,

creating multiple include filters means that in order to track traffic all of them needs to be true i.e. user visited all of the pages.
If they do not have any common structure it means a long regexp rule.

You can test your filters with Advanced Segments: Start testing with /(pagename1|pagename2|pagename3...)/.*

Let me know if you need more details

You can setup a new profile view - Sub-domain only.

 

Then, add filter - go to filters and add a filter (for your new view) that will ONLY INCLUDE traffic to your sub domain

 

subdomain filter only

 

replace sub with you sub-domain name and yourdomain with your original domain name.

 

Hope this helps
