Filters, along with metrics and breakdowns, determine what data is shown in your reports. They can help you understand your reporting data, find trends, and drill down to the information you really need.
For example, you can use filters to look at specific ad units, countries, or ad formats across a specified date range. You can add multiple filters to your reports to further refine your data.
What do filters do?
Filters hide unnecessary or unwanted data from your reports. When you add a filter, you’re defining what you want to see in the report, and AdSense will hide anything that doesn’t match the criteria in its filters.
Where are the filters in a report?
Filters can be added, removed, and adjusted in the filter box above the chart area of your report. When you add a filter, it’s applied to the chart and table within the same report.
