I use the following link to create queries for the Core Reporting API of Google Analytics:https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/explorer/

Now I want to use a filter that filters out two types of traffic: 1. filter out a specific type of medium 2. filter out a speciic type of medium in combination with a type of source.

Now I'm using the following filter expression: ga:medium==organic,ga:medium==cpc;ga:source==google

But the first medium filter also uses the source filter. So I actually want to exclude the source filter from the first medium filter.

Can anyone help me with this?


AND and OR are equivalent so it's impossible in that way. More info and examples, you'll find there: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/core/v3/reference#OR

But... there is a simple solution. Use ga:sourceMedium to filter out combined specific type of medium with a source. E.g. filter expression: ga:sourceMedium==google / cpc,ga:medium==organic
