Docs site metrics - Google Analytics

It took a while to get back on this topic “the list of pages that got the most incoming search traffic”.

Do we have analytics on docs-fp-o related metrics and how to extract the information on a regular basis?

Docs team want to prioritize efforts on QuickDocs and other user documentation based on site metrics and performance by pages and repos that help Docs team work on top performing 20 to 50 pages.

I can set up google’s search analytics – these aren’t anything running on our site, but a report from Google’s side. We used to have some basic web-log analysis running but no one was using it so that got turned off. Fedora Infrastructure could probably do something.

That’ll be massively helpful for Docs team’s priority. Thanks.

i posted an issue ticket to infra team. I would wait for their response first.

Oh, I actually have the Google analytics set up already. Send me the google account name for anyone who wants to be added to look at it…

It would be also helpful , to have a reference metrics for docs.f-p-o, e.g. getfedora.

@mattdm Hi Matthew, TGIF :slight_smile: - could you help with GA set up for me and Peter? Muchas gracias.

@py0xc3 Hallo, can you please split this thread with your super power?
A title can be like ‘Docs site metrics - Google Analytics’ but it is up to you for searchability perspective.

With the GA setup, we can track key metrics and see what progress needs to be monitored and acted. Danke.

@hankuoffroad Done :slight_smile: Please cross-check if I moved all related posts. Let me know if I missed one or so :slight_smile:

I have to regenerate my superpowers now, see you later :smile:

Yep, done. Sorry for the delay!

Thanks. What is tag manager account for Fedora?

I recall I need to set up dashboards and configure property to connect data. Due to other account linked to my Google account, I don’t see Fedora web traffic data coming through as a default.

I think that if you go to, you should now see several fedora sites (,, and in the drop-down at the top left.

I don’t know what “tag manager account” is in this context…

Ok, done.
