Include filter by region.

I was wondering if a regional, or country include filter, with only the United States entered would work to do what I cannot do with an exclude filter, outside of entering each region/nation individually, and exclude every other country but the U.S.?

 

Thanks much in advance.

Hi John,

Yes. You could create a View that only contains hits from the United States with the following Filter setup:

Filter Type: Custom
Include
Filter Field: Country
Filter Pattern: United States

All the best,
JD

Hi,

Tried to set the include country filter is not working. Testing the filter I get weird results that do not make any sense. Is this a temporary bug? #frustrating

I had the same problem (in Brazil). Country, region or city filters dont work in Google Optimize. Apparently the databases are inverted between region and city. Any solution?
