Viewing analytics for one page with multiple aliases

 Hi,

 

I was wondering what the best and easiest way is to view stats for pages with multiple aliases.

 

Background: Our site has hundreds of pages, many of which have multiple aliases and the aliases aren't always similar. So for instance, if we had a page that is /example, it would be easier to view all variations if the aliases were /exampletoday, /example-today, etc.

 

However, the alias list for one of our pages (e.g. /example) might look something like this:

/exampletoday

/example-today

/sample

/samples

/sampletoday

/thisisasample

/folder/anotherfolder/example

/folder/anotherfolder/example-today

/yetanothersample

 

We are in the process of reassessing and cleaning up our site structure and coming up with a cleaner system for our URLs, but we will still be needing aliases going forward and most likely still have aliases that are different enough that one search won't cover them all.

 

The question is: if we want to view the analytics for that one page, how can we do so easily without having to type in all the aliases separately and add up all the numbers?

 

Thanks!

If you do not have any common nominator in other information like Page title you are facing the manual option... Based on URLs yo could reduce the number of calculations but it might be impossible to have 100% filter to cover them all.

Hi,

 

you can setup content group for similar type of pages and use group name to filter out different pages on site.

 

Hit like if this help,
