Hello,

 

our website have a lot of traffic and a big part of that goes into (other).

Since the homepage take an important part of our business, i'm trying to make a new view with just the homepage traffic and its data without success, so i'm asking for suggestions.

 

Kind regards,

 

G.

Hi Giovanni,

You can create a filter to include only the home page which usually is "/' .. go to your admin tab a create a new filter
- Filter type: Custom > Include
- Filter field: Request URI
- Filter pattern: ^/$ (If your homepage is different just enter it between this 2 characters ^$ for example, ^/index.php$)

Hope it helps,

Hi Carlos,

Keep in mind that an Include filter is really an "include only" filter.
If you need to include more pages, make sure your filters don't overlap otherwise the most restrictive filter "wins".
