With Netlify Analytics, you can get a deeper understanding of your projects by monitoring trends in site activity. Server-side data collection for Analytics complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), has no impact on site performance, is not stopped by ad blockers, and does not require any extra configuration.
# Get started
To enable Analytics on your site, select the Analytics tab and select Enable Analytics.
Data collection begins when your site is first deployed rather than starting when you enable Analytics. Up to 30 days of historical data will be backfilled in your charts.
- Pageviews: instances of your site’s pages being served.
- Unique visitors: different IP addresses engaging with your site.
- Top locations: locations where your site has had the most pageviews.
- Top pages: pages of your site that have had the most pageviews.
- Top resources not found: resource requests for your site that returned the most
- Top sources: URLs that generated the most traffic to your site.
- Bandwidth used: how much data has been served by our CDN for your site.
By default, Analytics charts are scoped to the last 30 days. Filters are available for other time spans.
The Pageviews and Unique visitors charts plot daily metrics. You can examine the charts to explore day-level details. Data for the current day updates hourly.
In the Top locations chart, you can examine the map to explore pageview counts for all locations.
In the Top pages and Top sources charts, you can select the URL of any source or page to visit it in a new tab. Similarly, in the Top resources not found chart, you can select the URL of any resource to visit the
404 page served for it in a new tab.
The Bandwidth used chart plots daily metrics. You can examine the chart to explore day-level details about your site’s bandwidth usage. Data for the current day updates hourly.
Filters allow you to check your Analytics data over the span of 30 days, 7 days, or 24 hours.
The default filter loads all available data for the last 30 days.
Selecting the 7 days filter will scope all data on the page to the last week. Charts will continue to plot daily metrics. You can still examine the charts to explore day-level details. Data for the current day still updates hourly.
Selecting the 24 hours filter will change both the range and granularity of the data. All data on the page will be scoped to the last day. Charts will now plot hourly metrics. You can examine the charts to explore hour-level details.
