Include or exclude confusion!

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi

 

I have six websites under one property. I am trying to get individual views for each site and then one overall combination.

 

I have set up the filters to exclude the other IP Domains 

 

Example

 

Website 1

 

Exclude Website 2, Website 3, Website 4, Website 5, Website 6

 

Website 2

 

Exclude Website 1, Website 3, Website 4, Website 5, Website 6

 

But they are all recording the same data for each site. Do I need to include the IP Domain as well?

 

Each domain contains the same domain, just sub domains of each

 

Example

 

1.test.com

2.test.com

3.test.com

Another solution is to only use the filter Include only.

Example:
Filter Type > Custom: Include
Filter Field: Hostname
1\.test\.com


This filters all traffic to the site '1.test.com' without affecting traffic to the other sites '2.test.com' and '3.test.com'. And also don't forget to verify this filter

Hi Dean,

You should use "traffic to the hostname" instead of IP.

View 1: Filter type: predefined > include only > traffic to the hostname > that are equal to > 1.test.com
View 2: Filter type: predefined > include only > traffic to the hostname > that are equal to > 2.test.com
and so on.

Hope it helps,
