I’ve tried Googling for an answer to the following question, but cannot for the life of me find an answer. I will ask the same question in 3 ways, hoping that at least 1 of 3 makes sense to one of you.

1. I want to create a segment of visits of pages that were created during a certain timespan, namely this week.

2. I want to create a segment of visits of pages that existed this week but did not exist last week.

3. I want to create a segment of visits of pages that were published this week.

In case 1-3 are not possible, then I’d like to find the next best thing. For example:

4. A segment of the very first visit(s) of a page.

Thanks in advance!

So unfortunately, segments in Analytics are always based on a specific users activity, rather than the activities of a specific page. So while you can build a segment that will show the first time each specific visitor has visited a specific page, you won't be able to build a segment that shows the first time specific pages have been seen (or created/published).

You could, however, create a daily data source upload that would include date, pagename (standard dimension), page created (custom event), page published (custom event). Then for any arbitrary timeframe, you could pull a page report and then filter by page created or page published. Then you know those pages were either created of published during that timeframe, and you could easily throw in the visits metric to see visits for those pages that were created during that timeframe.
