What does this Custom Report show you?

After adding the report, you’ll see companies that have visited your website, as the screen shot above shows. The list has been filtered to exclude Internet Service Providers and sorted by Pages / Session. If you click one of the companies, you’ll see on which days they visited.

Note that there are 4 tabs in your report. By clicking any of the tabs you can view companies with most visitors, visitor location or visited page. The fifth tab is for those who would like better data, more tools to make it actionable and automated lead generation with Leadfeeder.

You can use the geographical location tab to see leads from certain countries. Click on that tab and select a country from the map or from the list below.

If you want to track companies that have visited a certain page, select the fourth tab and select page title from the list. Simple and powerful.

How do I filter out ISPs?

This Custom Report already includes a filter to get rid of ISPs. However, you might also want to filter out ISPs from your other Google Analytics reports or expand the filtering list. The best way to do this is to create a segment called No ISPs and define a condition that Service Provider does not match regex:

(not set)|customer|bredband|internet|broadband|network|dna oy|cablecom|tele|dsl|telecom|residential|vodafone|subscriber pool|china|comcast|addresses|telefonica|wifi|client|routed|leased line|communication|verizon|bredband|google|hosting|zscaler|road runner|unknown|provider|t-mobile|telkom|sprint|at-t|wimax|wireless|province|cable|dial-up|service provider|netblock|elisa|sonera|at&t|assigned|sl-cgn|block|consumers|kpn|telia|city of|tdc|hubspot
