When creating a list or workflow, you can use the Page view criteria to identify or target contacts that have or have not viewed specific pages on your website.
  • In your HubSpot Marketing Professional or Enterprise account, navigate to Contacts > Lists or Workflows.
  • Click an existing list or workflow or create a new list or workflow.
  • Select Page view as your list or workflow criteria.
    • In the lists tool, click Page view in the list of available filters on the left.

    • In the workflows tool, click Set enrollment triggers, then select Page view in the pane that slides in on the right. 

Set the criteria for your page view filter. Your options are:

  1. Contact has/has not visited exact URL: any contact who has a page view in their contact record timeline that matches the exact URL specified. For example, entering http://www.domain.com/pricing/marketing will show contacts who have or have not visited the specific tracked page containing that exact URL. Please note that a wildcard ( * ) will not work; you can instead use regex, explained in option #3. 
  2. Contact has/has not visited URL containing: any contact who has a page view in their contact record timeline that contains a specified part of a URL. For example, entering /marketing will show contacts who have visited a page on your website that contains /marketing in the page URL such as http://www.domain.com/marketing/trade-shows or http://www.domain.com/contact/marketing-companyPlease note that a wildcard ( * ) will not work; you can instead use regex, explained in option #3. 
  3. Contact has/has not visited URL that matches regular expression: also known as regex, this is an advanced functionality that HubSpot Support does not support, so it should only by implemented by users who are familiar with regular expressions. RegExr is a helpful website to learn, build, and test Regular Expressions. Please note that if it takes our internal processes more than one second to test a contact against a condition using a regex filter, HubSpot will automatically return a value of false, and the contact will not pass the evaluation for that filter.
Please note: visits to file manager file URLs are not tracked. If you enter a file URL in your page view filter, no contacts will meet the criteria of your list or workflow. 

HubSpot strips UTM parameters from the visited URLs on contact records. Learn more about how query string parameters are handled in lists and workflows here.
