You can optionally narrow down the amount of data to be analyzed for a specific conversion to get more accurate results according to your marketing needs.
You do this by defining the segments of visitors that meet specific required conditions, so you track the interactions of only these visitors. You may need to completely exclude groups of visitors from the analysis of certain conversions if they are irrelevant for that analysis. For example, exclude from tracking returning visitors or visitors coming from a certain website. You can also filter visitors based on their personal data. For example, you may want to track only visitors that are from a particular country or have a particular job title.
To define a segment of visitors to track, you select an interaction or a combination of interactions that represent the behavior of these visitors. These interactions are the conversion event for the segment defined. In other words, the interactions serve as criteria to be included in this segment, not as the interactions that are targeted in this conversion definition as a whole.
For example, if you want to track the upselling of product A to product B:
You can define segments in the following modes:
According to the rule above, only the behavior of the visitors that visited a page containing "https://www.progress.com/sitefinity" in the page URL be tracked. The condition is defined in Advanced mode.
You can add a number of rules and create custom combinations of rules. You can choose whether all, any, or the custom combination of rules needs to be met by visitors to track their behavior.
To combine more than two rules in a custom combination, you use a syntax with the rule indexes (A, B, C, and so on), connected by “and” and “or” and grouped logically by parentheses, so that when using:
Take a look at the following rules and their meaning:
You can also use nested parentheses for even more complex combination of rules. For more examples of complex combinations, see Combinations for conversion events and segmenting rules.
To define a segment of visitors with specific characteristics, you select the visitor property that the visitors must have. You can set conditions, such as Starts with..., Does not contain..., and so forth. For example, you may want to track just visitors, whose Job title visitor property contains the term manager. These may include Account manager, Acquisition manager, and so forth.
