Tracking queries for sub directory view on Google Analytics

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all,


I have a site, for which I have a blog with decent traffic at


At some point, I decided to track a sub-directory for a product - so I created a view to capture data for all pages starting with "/product" onwards. Eg. /product/features; /product/affiliate etc.


I am assuming that visitors typically will land on >> >> as the sub-directory is not that well-known.


The problem I am facing is that am not able to pinpoint query data or landing page data for this view only. I want to capture what query a visitor used to come to the blog landing page and then moved to the sub-directory pages.


Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

Hi Praveen,


You really don't need a view for this (although you could).  Did you also create a new property?  


If you have one tracker for the entire customer journey you can simply look at your content reports to see the sub-directory.  A good one to start with would be the content drilldown report or you could simply filter the all pages report by adding ^/product to the table filter field.
