An introduction to the wide range of external data sources available in Pressboard Studio along with Pressboard's proprietary on-page analytics
One of the most powerful aspects of the Pressboard Studio is reporting. The reporting dashboard provides an eagle's eye view of a content program's performance, while also giving you the option to dive deeper into granular results.
There are two primary ways in which campaign performance can be observed:
You can jump straight to creating a Custom Report (allows User to generate an externally share-able dashboard for non-platform stakeholders) to view aggregate results for a campaign, or by viewing reports for an individual piece of content and/or social/promotional post analytics.

The screenshots and descriptions below explain what each section of Pressboard Analytics means:
- Attention Buckets
- Traffic Sources
How active are your readers? Say goodbye to clicks and impressions. Attention measurement takes content analysis to a whole new level. Our technology analyzes active reading time, from mouse movements, to scrolling behavior, to location on the story page. Find out not only if a story is engaging, but where readers are dropping off.
- Date Range: Visual representation of the number of reads over the set date range. Click the dates filter to change the date range for all report data
- Reads: Number of reads on the story. This is measured based on the number of unique pageviews on the story page itself
- Average Reading Time: The amount of time actively spent on-page based on an average across all readers. Active reading is calculated by following mouse movements and scrolling behavior. This is a vastly different measurement from Google Analytics’ time spent, which doesn't take into account active versus dormant time on the page
NEW - Report Filters
Just above the Attention module, you will find a list of Filters including Location, Time Spent, UTM Campaign, Traffic Sources and Device Type. In addition, you can combine and layer multiple filters to take a closer look at performance.
Learn more about these new filters here.
2. Attention Buckets
This report allows you to group reads by the average active reading time to see where the majority of your readers sit in engagement time. There are two static highlights above the graph:
i. Reads 10+ sec
Easily see what volume of Reads were over 10+ seconds based on Pressboard Active Time.
ii. Engaged Rate 10+ sec
Easily see what percentage of your Total Reads were over 10+ seconds, based on Pressboard Active Time.
3. Traffic sources
Learn how much of the story readership is coming from social media compared to direct traffic, search traffic or referrals.
Methodology: We use the ‘Referrer’ HTTP header of the incoming request to report on the source of traffic to an article. This is standard practice and part of the open web. We use the Referrer to report on how much of the story’s readership is coming from social media compared to direct traffic, search traffic or referrals. We further break down the social traffic to see how many readers are coming from Facebook versus LinkedIn or other social platforms.
The locations report shows the geographic location of the reads. By clicking on the map, you can drill into and out of various countries. Break down the reads by country or even by province/state.
The viewability report displays statistics related to scrolling behaviour (Scroll Depth %) based on an average across all readers or as a reflection of any filters you have activated. Viewability also shows where readers are dropping off in a story and how many people read the story in its entirety.
Note: Average Scroll % is determined by where the scroll depth tag is placed on-page. For accuracy, it is recommended to be placed right after the last line of article text, however, some choose to place the code at the bottom of the page. Doing this may skew results (lower average) as page visitors seldom scroll all the way down to the bottom of a page.
Learn what device readers are seeing your story on, whether it’s mobile, tablet or desktop.
The links report shows the number of clicks on the "Presented by" logo, the footer image, hyperlinks included in the footer message and any trackable links added to your campaign.
