"We appreciate how Meetrics intelligently condenses relative readings. The News Attention Monitor shows us information about actual reading activity beyond clicks. This aids our decision guidance as a quality medium."

“Meetrics offers us a new approach to measure the quality and relevance of websites. The technology is equally useful for publishers as a market research instrument and as a web analytics tool."
Alexander von Reibnitz, Managing Director for digital mediums and new business areas
Many newsrooms use click-rate to aid the decision of where to place a teaser. However, this number alone can be misleading. Therefore, Meetrics puts click and visibility rates into relation with one another. For example: if a news site is loaded 2000 times and the first teaser is clicked 1000 times, then it may seem that it is, with a click-rate of 50%, more successful than a teaser at the bottom which is clicked 800 times, achieving a click-rate of 40%. If, however, you take into account the visibility rate, you will notice the second teaser was only seen by 60% of readers, whilst the first was seen by all readers. Therefore, the tables are turned, the second teaser performs better considering visibility.
The performance value shows what action is needed for each teaser. It is determined by four configurable values that return the click, read and bounce rate of articles and teasers.
You can also view all relevant information about articles and teasers as an overlay directly on your homepage. Furthermore, this tool offers valuable data like, for example, scrolling depth.
The overlay offers a detailed analytical display for each article. This shows you, in real-time, where your readers come from and which of your articles are being read from beginning to end.
Firstly, Meetrics gathers the content and structure of a news page. A Meetrics News Attention script is loaded in the browser and runs in the background, measuring the reader's interactions with the pages' content. The reader is not disturbed at any point.
The algorithms in the script trace the readings, scrolling and click behaviour and send the corresponding data to the server. These will be presented in real-time on the dashboard and overlay and directly transferred to the newsroom.
