Regix to filter EXACT pages in custom report

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi I have a list of 20 pages (articles) I want to monitor and I don't know enough about regix to make this work.

 

Here is an example list of URLs (minus the root domain) that I want to track. I need to monitor the exact pages because we have over 5,000 articles in that news directory and I wish to monitor a select number.

 

/news/10-years-back/

/news/do-you-know-this-song/

/news/funny-chat-moments/

/news/making-of-advert/

 

Can anyone advise on the right regix to use to find these pages in my analytic's custom report?

 

Thank you kindly

That's weird, I think it should work.

Here is the set up of a simple custom report:

Metrics: Pageviews
Dimension: Page
Filter: Include > Page > regex > ^/news/(10-years-back|do-you-know-this-song|funny-chat-moments|making-of-advert)/$

Thanks,
Paul

HI Martin,

Here we go:
^/news/(10-years-back|do-you-know-this-song|funny-chat-moments|making-of-advert)/$

Just let me know whether this works for you.

Best,
Paul

Thanks for that fast reply - i have tried something similar.... but I still get 'OTHER' pages listed in the report for some reason. Some pages are even in different directories and still appear in this report.

Ah! Thank you for that explanation - I actually had the dimension set as landing page!

I have changed that now and it works! Great Job!!
