Tool of the Day: Newsbeat

Newsbeat

Chartbeat, the real-time monitoring tool for websites, recently announced the release of Newsbeat, a publishers’ version of their analytics service. With input from The New York Times, Forbes, and other publications, Newsbeat’s service will allow content creators, editors, and producers to view real-time engagement with their website in order to create a modern, evolving and adaptive newsroom.

Newsbeat has a series of videos which beautifully illustrate how the service works and the set of features which can help newsrooms accurately track their audience’s involvement. The service takes in all the data from your website, runs it through their algorithms, and outputs a great dashboard view of charts, tables and graphs to show traffic sources, performance, visits, engagement, Twitter activity, and more. Users can also sort incoming data by section and by author for further granular control. Newsbeat’s algorithms also include a viral prediction system which will alert a user when a particular story is gaining traction so the organization can react accordingly. Chartbeat and newsbeat consistently track more than 3 million simultaneous users across multiple sites, so the service is guaranteed to work regardless of the size of your organization.

Newsbeat

Each of Newsbeat’s three tiers includes a free 30-day trial which covers unlimited domains and unlimited sections, as well as a 30-day history of overall site traffic. Check out the video tour and transform your news organization’s website today!
