Distinct count of page in a filtered view

Avatar

Level 1

What I'm trying to do :

  • Count the number of unique page an user have seen in a sub portion of our website.
    • I have 1 variable that only captures the account center of our users
    • I'd like to do a "who has seen 6 page within this account center" portion

 

What I'm doing that doesn't seem to work:

Creating a segment where I have a Hit with "acount center exists" and I embedded a Visit container with page distinctcount equals 6. I understand why it doesn't work, but stuck on what I should do to fix it.

Just an update, I've not yet found a solution that works.... 

 

The problem with using the distinct count on the dimension is that it's not restricted to the "specific sub section"... it's 6 distinct pages in the site (which you already have seen).

 

I attempted to do a sequential segment of:


HIT [

    Subsection X

    AND

    VISIT [

         Subsection X

         THEN

         Subsection X

         THEN

         Subsection X

    ]

]

 

While not unique pages, it should result in three pages in Subsection X during the Visit. I am not sure if this is working though, I had some users show up with only 1 PV, but that might be because they ended up with multiple identifiers in the visit, and I just can't see them actually rolled up...

 

But short of taking the data outside of Adobe and using SQL to pull this data, I don't think that the segment builder can properly do exactly what you need

Just to clarify, if I were a user, and I visited:

 

  • Page A (Main Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page C (Sub Section)
  • Page D (Main Section)

 

That shouldn't qualify, since I only saw 2 pages (B and C) inside the subsection during my visit.

 

Also, if I did:

 

  • Page A (Main Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page C (Sub Section)
  • Page C (Sub Section)
  • Page D (Main Section)

 

This also wouldn't qualify, since I saw 6 sub-section pages (B [x4], C [x2]), but they were repeated? Or would that be okay since there were 6 page views inside of the sub-section.

 

And of course:

  • Page A (Main Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page E (Sub Section)
  • Page F (Sub Section)
  • Page G (Sub Section)
  • Page C (Sub Section)
  • Page H (Sub Section)
  • Page D (Main Section)

Pages B, C, E, F, G. H (6 unique subsection pages) would qualify to be returned.

Correct, your last example is what i'm trying to achieve. 

 

At the moment, my segment is behaving like :

  • Page A (Main Section)
  • Page B (Sub Section)
  • Page E (Sub Section)
  • Page C (Sub Section)
  • Page H (Sub Section)
  • Page D (Main Section)

where the person sees 6 pages, regardless of if there were in the in the main or sub section. 

I want to do a distinctcount only on the subsection.

OK, I will see if I can come up with something.. the non-repeating pages are going to be the really tricky part....

We are indeed looking for non-repeating, but if there is no solution, we can settle for count of page view within the segment. (count the repeating page).

Yes, that make sense and what I thought. I appreciate the effort and time, thank you for your explanation and workaround.
