Composite Segments

A type of segment in which all of the rules are evaluated within a single pixel call, instead of across pixel calls (i.e. occurring on multiple pageviews).

Composite segments are used to create audiences that have engaged with very specific content at a given point in time.


One one page view, a users reads about SUVs with Diesel engines. On a second page view, the users reads about convertibles with gas engines.

In a standard segment, the user would qualify the rule "SUV AND gas engine", because both attribute values are separately present in his profile.

In a composite segment, the users would not qualify the rule "SUV AND gas engine", because he did not see both attribute values on the same page view.

    If we look at this description it´s clear but... what is the real difference with the real time segments according to the segment data procesing. Because I always understood (and I made QA of it) for the prcesing in real time the attributes have to be in the same page/event. And the user is in the segment on the page after.
    Could you write a real example?
