How to Record Specific Pages and URLs with Page Targeting

Crazy Egg gives you the control to track user journeys more precisely by selecting the specific page URL where you want Recordings to begin.

  1. Go to your Recordings dashboard.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Choose the site you want to record. Change the toggle to green.
  4. Under Page Targeting, click on Only start recording sessions once visitors land on a specific page.
  5. Enter in the URLs. In our example, we’ll enter in

You can add more pages by clicking on + Add another page. Once people visit a page that matches any of these URLs, Crazy Egg will start recording until the end of their session.

How to format the URL:
