Chartbeat

If you are looking for a tool that tracks traffic, content performance, author performance, and reader retention with a relatively simple interface and gleaming graphics then this is for you. Trickier things like report generation are made much more seamless now, and except for some friction in the sidebar navigation –– I find it to be a pretty flawless tool that I would recommend to friends or others in the media field. It's just a basic necessity to understand content these days, so Chartbeat is a great tool at that!

Supermetrics

If you are looking to pull and aggregate data from multiple sources for reporting or analytics, Supermetrics is the best option for connecting those data sources into a single table. Supermetrics is less beneficial if you report on a single data source or do not need to aggregate your data into a single source.

Supermetrics

  • Supermetrics allows to connect with different data sources like Google analytics etc .,
  • Supermetrics sends alert on the failure of queries to the desired email address

Cons

Chartbeat

  • Source of traffic needs improvement. Search and social make sense, but "internal" and "links" is a grey area. It would be helpful to define those with an organization and provide an information icon so users can easily remember what each of those buckets is tracking.
  • More ways to customize the real-time board. For example, with video content, that's great that I can see a user has started a video, but what is the completion rate, was that only on O&O or can that track Facebook, too?
  • Would like to see demo (age) information included as a way to slice the data so I can see what's working with my older and younger demo.

Supermetrics

  • Sometimes I have to refer to the website to find which metrics are what - the names aren't always the same as the platform calls them.
  • No public data for LinkedIn.
  • Definitely requires knowledge on how to use Google Data Studio.

I gave Chartbeat a 5 for a renewal rating, because, while it delivers clear and understandable content, Google Analytics also provides many of the same features for free. For a small to medium website, I believe it would be more cost effective to use Google Analytics. A website with a high amount of traffic, however, could merit spending the money on Chartbeat to maximize their potential.

It's easy to use and understand, which can't be said for all data-tracking sites that I've used in the past. It's easy for me to navigate and I didn't need to Google anything in order to find what I needed

I have had limited experience of support for Chartbeat but whenever I have needed help it has been there. Recently there was an issue of seeing different forms of data in real time - app and otherwise effectively, and the issue was being clearly dealt with and communicated back to us.

Alternatives Considered

Chartbeat

Chartbeat really remains the gold standard in the tracking, measurement and display of realtime engagement metrics. If your site has sufficient audience benefit from immediate changes in content programming, display and design, it's a great tool with a highly refined and intuitive user experience. Plus, it's API allows for broad integration.
Kurt Gessler | TrustRadius Reviewer

Supermetrics

Supermetrics is better because of its ease of use and it mirrors most of the metrics on ad platforms. For some similar reporting platforms, metrics are often called something slightly different or are not able to pull the same data as presented on the ad platform; Supermetrics is the closest you'll get to exact data alignment.

Return on Investment

Chartbeat

  • I do not have access to the financial arrangements in place, but I would view Chartbeat as a key tool for the company with significant advantages over other analytical software.
  • Continued enhancement of the product, for instance picture previewer, would provide additional value to the service.
