Likelihood to Recommend

Comscore Xmedia

The ability to drill-down locally is incredibly insightful. As mobile and other channels continue to improve, so has the platform and its accompanying reporting features. Data could be released in a more timely fashion so the numbers are more current and in-line with real-time viewership.

Parse.ly is well suited for page views and short timeline comparisons, as well as author reports, in addition to general traffic source patterns for content for media operations. I expect it would be less appropriate for ecommerce. I am also not aware of any potential for ad impression analytics, and am not sure of that is a capability.

Pros

Comscore Xmedia

  • Allows users to measure a total audience views across multiple platforms, and take those platform-specific views and convert them into a single, translatable metric.
  • The platform presents the data so that a user is not only looking and inferring action or viewership across multiple platforms but through a single identifier that clarifies or makes sense of that cross-channel data.
  • Allows you to slice up a single campaign and surmise how it will perform across various subsets of media.

  • I like most how you can actively see where traffic is coming from, whether it's a specific tweet or website that hyperlinks to a story. Parse.ly is amazingly specific with this sort of thing
  • The design is terrific and you can easily shift between seeing the top performing stories of the day and the top performing stories of the past ten minutes

Cons

Comscore Xmedia

  • Initially, it was hard to detect how many people actually saw the ads (this was not the most intuitive element) but the product has continued to improve over time with more discernment.
  • Could still improve the user interface, the overall comScore platform isn't the most user-friendly so it can be easy to get lost or go down a rabbit hole and not be clear on how to get back to a set of previous results or data.
  • Reporting could have faster load times.
  • Easier data visualization sorting or internal sharing options.

  • The URLs that list where some traffic came from (i.e. Twitter) are sometimes hard to read.
  • It would be great to see more detail of traffic sources. For example, if a spike of views come from Twitter it would be great to see if it is a specific tweet or account the bulk of views are coming from.

Getting support from Parsely is so easy. They are super responsive and really go out of their way to make sure they get you to a solution you're happy with. In the rare event that what you need is impossible, they actually record your feedback and actually get it to the people who could act on it. I've even had them get back to me later to get more information about a feature I requested.

Alternatives Considered

Comscore Xmedia

comScore Xmedia is by far the most granular and local offering. Google Analytics is a solid supplemental to the real campaign data you glean from comScore and SimilarWeb presents a nice high-level picture of the total viewership from a recurring or historical perspective.

One of the things users first say when they start with Parse.ly is how easy it is to navigate through a lot of data thanks to the design. Parse.ly also has several data points and metrics that their competitors do not track. The automated reporting also makes it much easier to review metrics on your own time, instead of having to stare at the dashboard all day.

  • Our audience has steadily grown since we got Parse.ly — particularly our mobile traffic. And the data helps reporters and photogs see what works with audiences, and what doesn't work as well as they perhaps thought. Knowing what readers really want to read has helped guide our news coverage.
