Only my homepage is showing up in my data

This typically happens if you've only added our embed script to your homepage (and not into the header of your site template).

Or, this happens if you are using canonical links incorrectly. If you are using canonical links incorrectly, it's essential that you get them fixed ASAP, as it affects SEO negatively.

Misusing canonical meta tags typically happens when you have a canonical meta tag present on every page, telling analytics and search engines that every page on your site is the homepage (this is obviously incorrect).

For example:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://yoursite.com">

If that tag is present on every page, then you’re telling everyone that every page on your site is your homepage. Once you fix this, your stats will show data for all pages with our embed script.

If you want to ignore canonicals

If there’s a canonical URL in place, as noted above, we use it instead of the current URL by default. This is what most customers want, and it’s why it’s the default.

If you want to use the current URL, even if there’s canonical (ignoring the canonical), then use data-canonical="false":

<script src="https://cdn.usefathom.com/script.js" data-site="ABCDEFG" data-canonical="false" defer></script>
