Vimeo is sort of a pretentious version fo YouTube. Just kidding, you awake yet? Vimeo is a great video serving platform which offers a unique set of features that online publishers aren’t going to get from YouTube. Just like YouTube, Vimeo provides basic data on your videos, views, engagement, etc. With Vimeo though, most of the data provided is public data so not a lot of “behind the scenes” metrics available here.
In this post, we’ll cover our options, or should we say option, for connecting Vimeo with Google Data Studio for reporting.

Choosing the Best Vimeo Connector for Data Studio
To be honest, we like Vimeo’s API much less than YouTube. We’re not programmers and it’s a bit confusing to be honest. Here’s the best we can do to point you in the right direction. For Vimeo, there are 3 different APIs which means 3 ways to configure your connection.
- User Data: This is the connection which simply grabs real time user data from Vimeo. If you want to dashboard your current stats, you’re golden with this.
- Video Data: Here, you can report on real time video metrics such as likes, comments, and duration.
- Video Uploads: Stats on videos you’ve uploaded
In short, Supermetrics is your only option right now for Vimeo + GDS integrations. Since the data is kind of limited, you may not even want to report quite honestly but grab a free trial, integrate with your data, and make you’re own assessment.
