Introduction

amp-pixel is a lightweight mechanism for measuring pageviews. It provides functionality similar to amp-analytics, but only includes a single event (views), and offers fewer transport mechanisms and variables.

Setup

amp-pixel is a built-in component and does not require loading an extension.

Basic Usage

The amp-pixel issues a simple GET request to the given URL and ignores the result. This is a fast way to track pageviews.

Example

<amp-pixel src="https://ampbyexample.com/tracker/foo"
  layout="nodisplay"></amp-pixel>

The variables noted in amp-var-substitutions will be interpolated in the URL as a way to capture some meaningful data.

Example

<amp-pixel src="https://ampbyexample.com/tracker/foo?redirectTime=REDIRECT_TIME&sourceHost=SOURCE_HOSTNAME&viewer=VIEWER"
  layout="nodisplay"></amp-pixel>

Referrer Policy

The optional referrerpolicy attribute allows you to strip the 'Referrer' header in the outbound HTTP request. Other values of referrerpolicy that are valid for other tags (e.g. amp-img) are not available for amp-pixel.

Example

<amp-pixel src="https://ampbyexample.com/tracker/foo"
  layout="nodisplay"
  referrerpolicy="no-referrer"></amp-pixel>
