Content reports

Yandex.Metrica provides a set of convenient and easy-to-use reports for the statistical analysis of content projects. They're located under Content. With the reports, you can:
  • Get a summary of current content.
  • Study audience engagement by content and category metrics.
  • Find out where users access your website from and the format they read your content in.

Learn more about what metrics are displayed in reports.

Reports overview

Working with reports

You can configure the following data display settings:

Period

Select the period to display data for. By default, reports display statistics for the current day and the summary shows statistics for the last 10 minutes.

Data breakdown

Some widgets display data with the time period divided into intervals. You can refine the time period to minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months.

Accuracy

It may take a long time to calculate metrics for a large amount of data. If you want to calculate metrics faster, reduce the accuracy percentage. In this case, sampling is used: calculations are made for just a chunk of data instead of all of it. Read more about sampling.

Content length

You can only view statistics on short content (up to 4000 characters) or long content (4000 characters and more).

Questions and answers

Content statistics are not collected
If there are no statistics under Content, make sure that:
  • You added the new tag code (available in the settings since December 6, 2018) to your website. Check that the https://mc.yandex.ru/metrika/tag.js library is enabled in the page code.
  • The markup meets the requirements.
  • The content texts contain more than 500 characters.
Statistics are collected wrong
If you think statistics aren't properly collected, make sure that:
  • All necessary content is marked up.
  • The markup meets the requirements.
  • All Schema.org items with markup are placed inside the body tag.
  • The content text (itemprop="articleBody") doesn't include anything unnecessary, like banner ads or comment blocks.
  • The content text contains more than 500 characters.
Content statistics are different from data in other Yandex.Metrica reports

In the reports under Content tab, data is collected on content that's marked up using Schema.org and Turbo pages. Other fast-loading page formats currently aren't taken into account. You can find data for all of the pages of a website, including those with no markup, in other Yandex.Metrica reports.

Traffic sources are considered for each content view and not for each session, like in other Yandex.Metrica reports. For example, if a user accessed a website homepage from a search engine, but then clicked through to specific content, basic Yandex.Metrica statistics show the session source as search, whereas in content statistics, it's internal traffic.
Content isn't marked up, but statistics are collected

You probably enabled Turbo pages. Statistics on content are collected automatically.

To find out what topics and content are most popular on your website, how people read and interact with this content, which sources generate the most traffic, and so on, add Schema.org markup to your website content. Read more about Schema.org markup.
