Overall Satisfaction with Parse.ly

It is used to gauge what stories are resonating with readers and calculate concurrent views, which translates to clicks aka eyes on stories. These numbers allow us to see what articles do well, what we can do more of, and which articles fall flat. Clicks also generate business for the company, a media outlet.
  • Real-time reporting
  • Easy to use
  • Reliable
  • Always being refreshed
  • Sometimes the format changes so you don’t see the top 20 stories, only say 8 or 10
  • Sometimes the history feature is glitchy
  • It doesn’t remember you so you always need to click on what you need
  • Easy to calculate clicks (traffic)
  • Dashboard easy to navigate
  • Numbers are clear and presentable to possible advertising clients
We used Chartbeat, which wasn’t as user friendly.
We have to come to rely on it so that reporters can gauge interest in stories and perhaps do a follow up on it to garner even more traction. It is an indispensable tool in today’s digital journalism profession, which is all about clicks and engagement and number counts.

It is a colorful, engaging site, which is easy to use. I also appreciate the header at the top to know if it is a slow day or an exceptional day traffic-wise. It gives you an immediate heads up. It also easily lists the top authors for the day. Would highly recommend.
