Custom Report for two Pages only

I am trying to create a new custom report in Google Analytics for two pages. I do not need the entire site's traffic data. Just traffic received on two pages. The metrics I am trying to track are Page views, Unique Pageviews, Time on Site and Bounce Rate for those two pages.

 

Here's what I have done so far:

  1. Went to Customization tab, clicked on New Report.
  2. Added Page views, Unique pageviews, Bounce rate and Avg. time on site under Metric groups.
  3. Dimension Drilldowns for Page (is this right?)
  4. In Filters, I have added an Include > Page > Exact > URL of 1st page.

 

When I try adding another filter for second page like point 4, I see 0s when the report is generated. Have also tried adding the second page URL separated by the '|'. But, it still does not work. What am I doing wrong here? Thank you for your help!

Hi :-)
Filters can be tricky, usually multiple include filters will not work as a filters work in the order they are applied so if any visits that do not match the first condition are discarded without making it to the 2nd include filter.

 

Best thing to do in this instance is to use a regex based on the page URLs and a pipe character | as an "or" operator
eg Include > Page > Regex > /(mypageone|mypagetwo)\.html

If you need help with creating the regex, please post back with examples of both urls that need to be included
