Segment creation: how to capture visit about 2 specific following pages and then exit

Avatar

Level 2

Hi, 

I want to create a segment about people that seen page A then page B and after exit.
I used the new panel available in Analytics : 'Next or previous item' to create the segment automatically but so I have only page A then page B.

So it looks like that:

First container is on hit level and the second group is on visit with the option 'Only After sequence'.
It works but I still have to define the fact that page B has to be the last one of the visit.

So I added the exit page has to be page B and I don't won't to have any page view after:

Segment gives me result but when I want to check it thanks to a flow, I see it's not acting as I want.

Do you have any idea what I'm missing?

Thanks a lot for your help

How about working from a Fallout visualisation first?

  1. Add a Fallout visualisation.
  2. Remove the "All Visitors" step.
  3. Add Page = A as the first step.
  4. Add Exit Page = B as the second step.
  5. Change the first step's "Eventual Path" to "Next hit".
  6. Right-click the green part of the second step, then choose "Create segment from touchpoint".yuhuisg_0-1662109573077.png
  7. Save the segment.

Thanks but don't think it will work.
Exit page if I'm not wrong is populated for all hits of the visit. So all page of the session will have this info.
The segment looks like this:

I have to found a way to explain that the page B after page A has to be the last one.

To avoid people going: page A -> page B -> page C -> page B

Good point. 👍

How about this? (I haven't tried it myself.)

  • Visit container:
    • Page equals any of Page A
    • THEN within 1 Hit(s)
    • Exit Page equals any of Page B
  • AND
  • EXCLUDE Visitor container:
    • Page equals any of Page A
    • THEN within 1 Hit(s)
    • Exit Page equals any of Page B
    • THEN within 1 Hit(s)
    • Page exists

I try this with some small adjusment to get this:

  • Visit container:
    • Page equals Page A
    • THEN within 1 Page view
    • Page equals Page B AND Exit Page equals Page B
  • AND
  • EXCLUDE Visit container:
    • Page equals Page A
    • THEN within 1 Page view
    • Page equals Page B
    • THEN within 1 Page view
    • Page exists

      I had to change the condition with exit page in the first container because exit info is put on all page of the visit.
      It looks ok but not yet sure on how to validate it.
      I try with a fallout like that, using the next hit on visit level container:
      1st touchpoint is page A
      2nd touchpoint is page B
      3rd touchpoint is page view exist
      And Segment the fallout with all visit AND my segment.
      I can see that my 3rd touchpoint is empty for my segment.
      I know the NEXT HIT option is not the best because there may be other hit in between based on event and I'm looking for page view only.
      But it's the best result I get.

Thanks all for your help

By excluding the container on Hit, I think we just exclude the next hit from the segment, but we keep the other info of the visit.

So we don't exclude, we just limit the amount of hits in the visit.

I tried this but not always easy to check the result.

Thanks
