I'd like to filter incoming information, with one profile containing U.S. traffic and another E.U. traffic.

U.S. was easy enough...

Custom Filter
Include
Filter Field: Country
Filter Pattern: United States$
Case Sensitive: No

This worked great.

European traffic however has been problematic.

Custom Filter
Include
Filter Field: Region
Filter Pattern: Europe
Case Sensitive: No

The above doesn't work. I also tried "Southern Europe|Northern Europe|etc" as the filter pattern. No dice. Things are made more difficult by the fact that I can only test that worked by checking whether traffic was acquired the next day.

Have you tried using Continent in GA Advanced Segments. I believe using the Continent field solves your problem.

I tried that first, but it seems you have to specify something under "Continent", such as a region, as demonstrated at "0:40" here in this video: Google Analytics - About Advanced Segments. Also this thread seems to indicate "Europe" can't be filtered: Google Analytics Group. Correct me if that's not correct for some reason :-) –  dan Aug 1 '13 at 10:53
    
I checked this and it works in my Analytics. Under Continent, I specified Europe. So you would have two segments one for US with the country filter being set, the other as Europe with the continent filter being set. –  Prasad Aug 1 '13 at 11:27
    
+1 It appears to allow "Europe" now and corresponding results were returned (as far as I can tell). Maybe this is something they updated, and the threads on this need updating too :-) –  dan Aug 1 '13 at 11:59
