Seems like a simple thing, but I cannot find a simple answer to how to see the referrers to a specific page on my site using Workspace. Using the referring domain dimension pulls up referrers to the entire site. If I create a filter (next to the referring domain label), it pulls up zero data.

Consider a simple user journey:

some other website --> your website page A --> your website page B

Then your website page B's referrer is technically your website page A.

You probably want Referrers to specific Entry Pages. That would be Referrers to your website page A, in the above example, because that is the first page that the user saw in that referred visit.

In that case, in a Freeform Table, you can include the Entry Pages dimension with Visits metric, then breakdown the few Entry Page items that you're interested in by Referrer.
