Your site analytics
Get insights into how many people are viewing your stories with data powered by Plausible Analytics
You can see how many people are visiting your stories using Prezly's built-in analytics section on the Site activity dashboard. This is powered by data from Plausible Analytics, an open-source project dedicated to making web analytics more privacy-friendly. That means full GDPR compliance, no personally identifiable information, and no cookies 🍪
⚠️ Please note: We’re still working on this feature, so it is likely to change and may not always be available in all Prezly subscriptions.
Each of your Prezly publications has its own analytics, which you can access in three ways.
Click on the first option in the "What next?" section of the Prezly welcome screen to access your site's analytics:
Head to Sites and click on any site (live or not live) for which you want to view analytics. You'll be brought to your Site activity dashboard, where the analytics can be found at the bottom half of the page.
Head to Stories and hover over the site name for which you want to view analytics. You'll see navigation options appear: Activity & analytics, Settings, and Visit site. Click on Activity & analytics to view the insights for that site.
Since this is a brand new feature, you will be able to see how many people visited your site from 20 August 2022 onwards; historical data from before this date has not been tracked.
That's no problem at all – you'll simply be able to view both your usual Google Analytics and your new analytics area, powered by Plausible.
It's worth mentioning that the data shown within the two tools may differ, as many sites block Google Analytics from tracking visits. Plausible's published research into this phenomenon shows that your actual traffic may be 6% to 26% higher than what Google Analytics shows.
We chose Plausible over other providers, like Google, because of their team's strong ethics and their tool's accessibility. Simply put, you don't need to read a 30-page manual to get to grips with their data. (Plus, we use Plausible for our own site analytics, so we know it's good! :)
