Website Analytics - Tracking and Logging Forum

Couple of Specific Google Analytic Questions

 9:28 pm on Jan 18, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hi guys, I have not been able to get any help over at Google Groups and in the past this community has been helpful so I thought I would give it a shot even though this isn't a Google Analytic forum.

Question 1: I have a number of 'double URL's' showing up in my reporting. They take the form of:


Any idea as to why this sort of stuff shows up and does anyone know of a way to prevent it? My account is set up as follows:

Website URL: [reallycooldomainname.com...]
Default page: [reallycooldomainname.com...]


Question 2.

I am having a hard time with REGEX and need some help with filtering out our development testing environment subdomains reporting from our Google Analytics report.

Any idea how to do this, I am completely stumped. So far, I have chosen from the filter manager, exclude all traffic from a website and then this in the domain section.

This one I am trying to just not have anything from dev3 display in my logs. I tried this after the one below did not seem to work.

This is my first attempt. I am trying to exclude everything from the dev subdomain.

Here I am trying to exclude everything from the dev.red.widgets subdomain.


None of this works so far. If anyone wants to write a great article for their web site or blog, I suggest giving a common sense explanation of REGEX with some examples of its use in English for the confused people like me out there.

Any help you could provide would be MUCH appreciated.
