Analytics can give you much more information than just your number of readers. Delve deeper and analytics can also lead to news stories and help shape editorial angles as a story unfolds.
In this week’s podcast Sarah Marshall, Journalism.co.uk’s technology correspondent, speaks to:
- Laura Amico, who set up Washington DC-based Homicide Watch. Laura explains how she gets news stories by looking at the different terms people are searching for.
- Tony Haile, CEO of Chartbeat, a real-time analytics company used by major publishers including Al Jazeera and the New York Times. Tony gives examples of how news organisations respond to what audiences are reading.
