e.g., In looking at ecommerce stats for a custom variables report, I only want to see numbers for visitors who visited our shipping rates page (zip_check.php).

I don't see anything in "advanced segments" that will help.

I've also tried "filters" in "custom reporting". The most hopeful filter fields I saw were "Page" and "Page Title", but it's unclear to me what these filter do. They don't appear to simply filter for sessions or visits that contain a visit to a particular page.

Here's a report snippet after applying a "Page Title" filter. The numbers obviously got wacky.

UPDATE: Here's a complete snapshot of the report after using "Customize" to filter for "Page Title" exact= "Shipping Calculator".

  • Could you snapshot the whole report? Generally you can do this with a simple saved search/include/exclude based on the page URL. Commented May 9, 2012 at 20:16
  • @toomanyairmiles I think I understand what you requested, and I updated the question with a link to a screenshot of the whole report. Is this what you had in mind?

the best way to approach this would be through advanced segments; selecting 'page' and entering the URL of the page you want to restrict visits for. Filters are not applied retrospectively to the data whereas advanced segments are.
