Filtering an exported Google Analytics report
Posted on 2014-04-29
Recently I recognized that my GA statistics were skewed by a few visitors whose visits accounted for a disproportionately large percentage of total sessions. I've applied filters now, so that data going forward will exclude those visits. I understand that filters can't be applied retroactively, but I've heard that data can be exported, and then filtered somehow. If this is so, I'd appreciate step-by-step guidance on how to export data, and remove visits from certain cities, so that the bounce rate, duration of sessions and number of pages visited could be evaluated without the bias of those frequent visitors.
