  • You can see a high-level overview of how your content is performing on Mass.gov by visiting the All content screen in the CMS. Now you'll see 2 columns labeled "score" and "page views (1 month)." The scores column will display a page's overall score for the previous calendar month. The page views column will display traffic to your page over the previous 30 days. Learn more about this new performance overview tool (DP-10469, DP-10470).
