Exclude pages — Sometimes there may be technical reasons why certain pages should be excluded from crawls, for example external links are not able to be accessed outside a geographic area or pages that are known to return error codes that you would not like to be alerted to. To exclude a page/s from generating an Insight, enter a regex pattern that matches. There are numerous tools that can help you generate the regex patter such as regex 101. It's important to understand that you will need to escape some characters when inserting them into the field.
