i have a site with 3 sub-sites as below example :-


google track script added on all site pages and views created according to the site filter

for example "www," have filter that include only "/en" etc. for other sites


But the filter is not applied on the below options:-

Behavior > Events --> how to view the events on "en" only ?

Site Content > Pages --> how to view top content on "en" only ?

Acquisition > Search Console > Queries --> how to view the Queries on "en" only ?



how to apply the filters on above and what is the best practice to track the sub sites ? to use different track id for each sub site ? then how to collect all data for all sites if am going with this option

I would go with 1 property that tracks all the traffic.

Create Segment for all those subsites

Fro site content use the advanced filter that is just above the reporting lines (you can create a shortcut from that so you dont always have to set it up)


Since Queries data come from Search Console it means you would need to separate your site in that end to 3 different sites, most likely not a good option. Restrictions in the GA reports prevent you haveing Landing page and Query side by side also Segments are not supported. Only option here is to check reports directly from Search Console where you can do filtering based on URL and get Queries just for /en pages


To make bad day worse, spend it wishing for the impossible

Thanks for your reply,

you mean to remove the filters on the views and use segment instead of them?


or to keep the filters as is and create segment on each view ?
