Consolidate URLs with parameters into the main URL

Hi all,

 

I have this problem:

 

- I have a custom report that filters out a list of URLs (theoretically 41 in total e.g. /ambiente/2016/05/repower-una-nuova-energia-che-rispetta-l-ambiente-00903499.html), but I noticed that GA shows me also the same 41 URLs with parameters (e.g. /ambiente/2016/05/repower-una-nuova-energia-che-rispetta-l-ambiente-00903499.html?tid=6f28766b74617571786970)

 

- Instead of the expected 41 results the total now is more than 5k

 

Question:

Is there a way to consolidate the URLs with parameters into the main one for the report I'm doing?

 

Thanks!

Hi Admin b,

You can try using a RegEx filter to eliminate all the url's with extra parameters. eg. (\/ambiente\/2016\/05\/repower-una-nuova-energia-che-rispetta-l-ambiente-00903499.html.*)
The .* includes anything that follows that URL so all parameters will be included in your filter.

Hopefully this helps,
Omar

Hi Omar,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I don't want to eliminate the URL's with parameters (they represent 30% of the traffic), simply want to consolidate them into the main one.

Any suggestion?

Thanks!
