Stats & Analytics
CoveritLive event statistics allow users insight into the behaviour of their audiences.
Real-time stats during your Live Event are available directly from the EventStudio > "Statistics" Tab. Once your event is over the Stats & Analytics page provides a variety of in-depth event statistics including how many pageviews your events received, how many visitors "clicked" to engage with your events, and how many watched 'Replay' mode. If you're using an Enterprise Account you can also view detailed stats for all your Account Member's events.
Event stats can be found by visiting the Events > Stats & Analytics page.
Use the Search Options section at the top of the page to refine the set of events you'd like to retrieve. Filtering is avaialble on date range, event state (live, upcoming, completed), and keywords. If you're using an Enterprise Account, or CoveritLive Groups you can also filter events using these criteria.
You can also access an event dashboard (shown below) by clicking the stat icon associated with the event. The individual Stat dashboard includes an overview of event information to allow you to quickly analyze your event success.
Please note that duration and concurrency data is not available for Tickers
What are Clicks?
Traditionally, clicks are recorded when a user on a web page uses their mouse and clicks something on the page. We use a similar definition to determine a Reader's initial interaction with your event. For each Reader who interacts or "clicks" on your event we record a single "click" against that event. A click is defined as a Reader who actively clicks into or interacts with a CoveritLive event.
If the event has a Title Page, a click would be counted if the Reader clicked the Title Page to enter the event. For events without a Title Page, a click would be counted the first time a Reader interacts with the event in some way (e.g. submits a reader comment, votes in a Poll, scrolls through content) OR if the Reader is engaged with the event page for an extended period (one minute or more). Readers viewing the event on a mobile device and on a Channel Page will also generate a click. Since clicks indicate an individual Reader's interaction and engagement with your event, we felt that was an appropriate statistic to measure account activity against.
||Please Note: On June 1st 2014, we updated how we track and report clicks for Events and Tickers that do not include a Title Page. As a result the click definitions for events without a Title Page have been updated to reflect this change. Events with a Title Page have not been affected.
Other solutions charge based on page views or bandwidth which means you pay more the longer people stay in your event, the more media you use and every single time your blog or event is loaded on a page, even if no one reads or interacts with it. Our goal is to price based on the number of people that interact with and are engaged with your event, which is tracked through clicks. Clicks are based on an individual’s initial interaction with the event such as the first time that individual clicks for live updates. Pageviews and bandwidth do not count as clicks and are unlimited.
Are clicks unique?
A Reader who stays on your event is only counted for their initial "click" or interaction. However if a user clicks into a CiL event, and then leaves the page or browser, and returns and clicks in again, that will be counted as two clicks.
Do clicks on Replays (Completed Events) count?
Yes, when a Reader clicks on your completed event (to view the event Replay), these clicks are included in your click count for the month. If you wish to avoid Replay clicks, you can remove the event embed code from your webpage, and instead display the event content using the RSS feed or our API. (The event will remain in your Completed Events list under My Account, and you can still review its stats.)
How do I track my clicks?
Your My Account page makes it easy to track your Account’s monthly clicks. If you're an Enterprise Account Administrator then you can view all Account invoices, billing details and click limits from your Account > Invoices page. Additional event statistics are available from your Events > Stats & Analytics page. As an Enterprise Administrator you can also view detailed stats for all events within your Enterprise Account.
