    Cloudflare Web Analytics releases three new enhancing privacy features


    Posted: 15 Mar 2021



    Last December we opened up our brand new privacy-first Web Analytics platform to everyone. Today, we’re excited to announce the release of three of the most requested features: adding multiple websites to an account, supporting Single-page Applications (SPA) as well as showing Core Web Vitals in Web Analytics

    Bringing privacy-first analytics to everyone

    Since we launched two months ago, we’ve received a lot of feedback from our users. We are really happy that we are able to provide our privacy-first analytics to so many of you.

    Popular analytics vendors have business models driven by ad revenue. Using them implies a bargain: they track visitor behavior and create buyer profiles to retarget your visitors with ads; in exchange, you get free analytics.

    Our mission is to help build a better Internet, and part of that is to deliver essential web analytics to everyone with a website without compromising user privacy. We’ve never been interested in tracking users or selling advertising. We don’t want to know what you do on the Internet — it’s not our business.

    You now can measure multiple sites

    When we launched Web Analytics, each account was only able to measure one website. We are happy to announce that all users can now add up to 10 websites.

    Add one or more new sites via the Cloudflare Dashboard by selecting "Add site" in Quick Actions.



    For measuring multiple subdomains (a.example.com and b.example.com) there are two options:

    1. Add the root domain (example.com) to Web Analytics and add the same JavaScript snippet on all subdomains (a.example.com and b.example.com)
    2. Add the subdomains separately using multiple sites. Here you have to add separate snippets.

    We use the hostname to validate the request, so remember that you can only use the JavaScript snippet if both the configured and actual hostnames match.

    You can see the analytics for all your websites sites in one place



    When we talked to customers about the multiple site feature, we got the feedback that it is very important to add all sites to Web Analytics and be able to track them. But they also said that it would be even more powerful to have the option to see analytics for all your sites combined in one place.

    We listened. If you select "View Web Analytics for all sites’ on the Web Analytics overview page, you can now see all your sites listed and apply filters to them using site tags.
