Setting up content grouping with regex

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi folks

 

I'm trying to set up content grouping to capture all the holiday pages on a travel website.

 

I have used the Extraction method with 

Page = ^\/destinations/([^\/]+)\/holidays\/([^\/]+)$

(e.g. /destinations/brazil/holidays/brazil-holiday-self-drive)

 

(I tested this regex by using it in an Advanced Filter in my All Pages report and it worked fine)

 

However when I go to "All Pages" in my reporting I see the "(Not set)" category with the same number of pageviews as All Pages. When I click on "(not set)" I see ALL the website pages, not just the Holiday ones I want.

 

Do I need to leave it 24 hours or is there something I am doing wrong with the set up? Any help appreciated.

 

Cheers

Yes, you do need to wait for 24 hours for it to take effect.

 

I've tested your regex and it works fine. As a side note, you don't really need to escape forward slash in GA.
