Essentially, I want all visitors that follow this specific "funnel" to be ignored in the stats:

  1. Go to the website (landing: /)
  2. Click on "this specific link"
  3. No other action taken.

I'd prefer to have this as a separate view so that I can compare stats with and without the aforementioned users.

Is this possible with Google Analytics?


  • When the use clicks the link, do you send an "event"? Or is there a specific page they visit afterwards? Mar 14, 2017 at 10:05
  • @StephenOstermiller It's not set up yet, but I'd send an event. Mar 15, 2017 at 7:17

Once a user finished your funnel you can trigger an event and then create a view with a filter, based on this event. Example: enter image description here

  • Filters discard data as it comes in. Doing this would prevent seeing any traffic that doesn't match the filter. I'd recommend a "segment" instead. Mar 15, 2017 at 9:41
  • @Stephen Ostermiller, Patrick said he wants a separate view. Creating a separate view and using segment in it just doesn't make any sense :-) Mar 15, 2017 at 14:53
  • I've been so crazy busy that this task has falled so far down the list of priorities that it's no longer even on it. I will thusly set this as answered as I'm sure it will work :) May 2, 2017 at 13:21
