New Percentage Metrics Available in Activity Stream Reports

  • Occurrences Shares and Reach Beta are now available as part of Activity Stream reports, within the Digital Behaviour Report.

As a reminder, Activity Stream reports reveals the activity of a target audience prior to (upstream) and after (downstream) interacting with a selected website or industry of interest. These insights help you identify opportunities to engage audiences on their preferred channels before they reach you or your competitors. Insights available in Activity Stream reports can also help marketers discover to where they lose audience — an important consideration in developing more effective audience engagement and content development strategies.

Using the above as an example, you can check how results should be interpreted including previously available and new metrics list below:

Expanded Search Term Limit in Segment Builder

When selecting a search term as part of your audience creation criteria, you can now select up to 50,000 variations for each search term you enter; previously this number was limited to the top 100 variations only.

This massive improvement further streamlines the overall segment building process, meaning you can quickly and easily create segments in AudienceView of individuals who have searched for any relevant search term variations that you wish to include as part of your audience definition.

As a reminder, all search term variations suggested in Segment Builder are based and sorted by the most popular ones by search share in the last 12 weeks available from the moment you are building your segment.

 

Create portfolios in the Segment Builder

Another new feature introduced in Segment Builder in this release is the Create Portfolio button for search terms. This is available when you select search terms as part of your segment building criteria, and facilitates how you can create portfolios in our platform.

After entering and selecting the search terms variations, just hit the Create Portfolio button on the top right corner of your screen. Your portfolio will be immediately available for you to use in Segment Builder as well as in other areas of the platform.

 

Revamped Portfolio Builder

We have also revamped the entire Portfolio Builder functionality. Now you can create and edit portfolios using a user-friendly interface. As a reminder, portfolios can include websites or search terms, and are a useful way to customised your experience with our platform.

  • Website Portfolios are a great way to easily define a competitive set featuring only your key competitors’ websites. Also, they can be used to include your main affiliate marketing partners or websites in your media plan.
  • Search Term Portfolios are a useful tool to include a list of all your key PPC or SEO keywords. They are also particularly helpful to create bundling up variations of multiple search terms — e.g. top variations of “car insurance” in combination with top variations of “home insurance”.

To build them, from anywhere in the platform just select the Create button on the top ribbon of your screen and then select Portfolio. From there you can choose whether you want to work on a Website or a Search Term portfolio, and then either manually add new entries using the new interface facilities or use the upload tool to import bulk lists in CSV file format.

Note: Portfolios may include up to 5,000 websites / 50,000 search terms.
