New to segments?

Segments let you group pages together based on any page property you choose. Once set up, you can use them for:

  • More focused reporting
  • Setting up custom alerts
  • Targeting your auditing on specific parts of the website.

Now that you're fully up-to-date, let's look at all the juicy segment improvements waiting for you in ContentKing!

1. Check out the new Segment editor

Creating and editing segments is now easier! After a complete redesign, the segment editor shows you all the pages that match your segment settings… as you adjust them! Create a new segment (opens in a new tab) right away to see why we’re so excited about it! If you want to learn more, just check out our support article.

2. Assign icons to your segments

Getting slowed down as you try to remember which segment is which? Segments have always used color-coded labels to help you identify them across the app. To make that even easier, now you can designate an icon to go with that label. And it’s simple to do! Just have a look below then head to Segment editor (opens in a new tab) to set up yours today!

3. Limit segment size where needed

Have a segment that has gotten a little too, let’s say, robust? You can now limit how many pages can fit in your segments. Here are some examples:

  • Top 250 pages based on GA Pageviews
  • Top 5% of pages based on GA Page Value

To limit a segment's size, just go to the Segment editor (opens in a new tab) for that segment and click on Set limit in the Size limit section. Curious to learn more? Check out our support article.

4. Manage all your segments from a single screen

Not sure which segments you already have on your website? Problem solved! Now you can see all of them in one display: Segments overview (opens in a new tab) in Settings. From here you can browse any segment’s details (their labels, filter criteria, and size limit), and manage your segments, in general:

  • Create new segments
  • Edit or delete existing ones
  • Import segments from another website (continue reading to learn more)

  • Segment label
  • Filter criteria
