Filters are a powerful feature that enable you to cut through the noise of your web traffic and surface the information you're really interested in.
As your Statcounter projects build more traffic data, filters will become an increasingly valuable tool for surfacing important information. To help you get started, here are a few examples that illustrate how Statcounter members are using filters.
Perhaps you run a local business and you’re most interested in seeing stats on your website visitors from the surrounding area. Or you might want to zone in on visitors from a particular country or region. Use the Town/City, State/Region and Country filters to filter by location.
Running a Bing or Google Ad campaign? Check for fraudulent clicks in the Visitor Activity report and filter Ads Clicked Per Visitor to see if a single visitor is clicking on ads repeatedly.
See the path shoppers took to your checkout page by selecting the Visitor Paths report and filtering on your checkout page URL using the Page or Page Title filters.
The Download Activity report shows information on which files have been downloaded from your website. This is very helpful if you offer downloadable content as a critical step in your sales funnel. Filter downloads by File Type or Download Link Match to track activity.
Filters become increasingly useful as the amount of data in your projects increases. Create Visitor Labels and you'll be able to filter your visitors by label. Oh, and don’t forget if you Block Your Own Activity you won't have to filter your own IP address out each time you view a report.
