Goal doesn't verify for one of the provided URLs but only for another '/'

I try to set up my goals and yesterday I ran the steps to get the dataloaded in the report.Setting a goal for / which has 10 hits I get a verification the goal will work (when I press verify-link on setup goal page). Trying to set any other url for example '/Ad' which has 3 hits does not generate any conversion rates(but it says success). How am I supposed to interpret this?


I also wonder if the correct way of setting a goal with regex is


when the goal URL is

, I think that should match but right now I don't even get a conversion verification on the full URL and equals to setting for: /Settings/EditCarAd/00b83646-d2d4-4abe-8e50-6a1c62d330e7

Goal completions are not retroactive - are you expecting to get the conversions from your current data?

And Looks like its a simple typo - try ^/settings/editcarad/.*

Here is a handy regex testing suggestion from Google
