sub domain only view while excluding www
Within our website, we have a subdomain for each organization we work with. organization1.website.com,organization2.website.com, etc. These are created as we add organizations and will grow to be in the hundreds.
I'd like to track the data for those subdomains as a whole, while excluding our website, www.website.com.
I've set up two views. One to hold data for just www, and the other to track data for all other subdomains. I'm a little new at GA, and have done some looking around, but can't really figure out the best way to do this. Any help with best practice so I can learn is greatly appreciated.
Re: sub domain only view while excluding www
You need to set up an exclude filter for the organization subdomains view:
Predefined -> Exclude -> traffic to hostname -> that are equal to : www.website.com
For the website set up an Include Only filter:
Predefined -> Include Only -> traffic to hostname -> that are equal to : www.website.com
So basically you will exclude the www subdomain from the organizations view and include only the www subdomain in your website view. (www is also a subdomain like organization1, organization2...)
Hope this helps.
