I want to display a pie chart of pageviews for my site, but there are a few outlier pages I do not want included.

Is there a way to exclude those sites from the pie chart?

You can use Advanced Segments to exclude that pages and put together that chart after applying that segment (which excludes those outlier) pages.

Ravi, please explain how this is done. – toomanyairmiles May 3 '12 at 11:44

It is done as follows (this example is for excluding visits where "time on page" > 20 minutes, but you can change it to suit your needs):

  1. Near the top of any report, under report title, click "advanced segments"
  2. On the far right, click "+ New Custom Segment"
  3. Change "Include" to "Exclude"
  4. Click the green drop-down and change the value to "Time on Page"
  5. Leave "Greater Than" as-is
  6. Enter 1200 (seconds) for 20 miniutes
  7. Click "Save Segement"

That new segment is automatically applied to the report and graph.
