Historical Analytics Data (more than 30 days)

Hi there,

I was wondering if it’s possible to access historical analytics data from more than the past 30 days? Would be ideal to get a view of how the site has been tracking since launch. And also be able to compare month on month.

Hey @speldie23,

thanks for chiming in. At the moment, a longer time window isn’t available. It would be a really nice idea to have a longer time window for the analytics, for sure, and you are not the only person interested! I have added your comment to an existing feature request - and we’ll definitely let you know when/if this happens.

We are also looking for this - not having any historical data makes the analytics product not very useful compared to other analytics tools such as Google Analytics (plus its not free!). I would at least expect more infos about the top pages (not just the top 10), insights into hrefs, user agents, and all the things we could get from e.g. Apache2 log analysis open source tools.

I hear you, arekkas! I do hope we’ll be able to implement some of those suggestions - and if we do, we will definitely let you know.

Hi Perry, is there a process to request historical analytics data? We have been hosting our project (an Open Source book project) since 2019. I have recently activated the analytics but I see that I can only access analytics for up to 30 days. Since Netlify collects page visits and associated data (in a GDPR compliant way), I would like to know if I can request, either via my account or using API, data for last year or more. I would like to use this data to develop a community report and evaluate our impact and reach. If Netlify doesn’t provide a longer history, does the team recommend using a specific third-party open source analytics service like Motomo or Plausible? Any guidance and resource that addresses these questions will be super useful.

hi there, unfortunately, no, there is no way currently to see or access data older than 30 days. Sorry! I wish i had better news for you.

Hi there,

is there any update or progress made on this request. 30 days is nice but you want to look at quarterly or yearly stats. Even an export-function would help so we can create it ourselves.

hi @jdriven.com , i totally hear you! I wish I had an update to share - but at present, I do not. Hopefully in the future though, it is not off the table.

I’d like to also jump on the bandwagon and ask if I could be added to the existing feature request as we’re looking to move away from GA to your analytics service.

is there anyway of downloading a data-dump of the last 30 days results which we could then archive?
