Comscore + Nielsen = FAIL

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Brian Stetler notes: “While Nielsen reported 8.9 million visitors to Hulu in March, another measurement firm, comScore, counted 42 million. Exacerbating the confusion, Nielsen’s numbers for April show Hulu losing audience while still managing to add video views, also known as streams.”

Meanwhile, the smart folks at Quantcast think that Hulu has 16 million.

Starbucks blog readers

Check out the results for the Starbucks gossip blog here.

More results: Agonist, Instapundit, LargeheartedBoy

Agonist, Instapundit and LargeheartedBoy.

LHB is off the charts for social bookmarking and tagging; readers are 2x-4x more likely to use, Digg, Flickr, and Stumbleupon. Readers of both Agonist and Instapundit have very similar curves for valuing news sources, with a huge preference for information consumed via blog. Instapundit’s beer graph is fun, and 3/4 of Agonist readers have not shopped at the world’s largest retailer in the last month.

Obscure Store readers read themselves

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

The first blog I ever read, back in 2000 long before the site was even known as a blog, was Jim Romenesko’s Obscure Store and Reading Room. So I get a special meta-recursive pleasure both in seeing Obscure Store’s reader demographics and reading those same readers’ thoughts on those results. It’s “media in the round.”

Speed bump…

Turns out SurveyMonkey’s upgrade to a new platform last month caused some data-base export issues; we’ve had to rewrite algorythms that turn data into graphics. We’ll be back up to speed tomorrow.

The survey will be offline tonight while the awesome folks at SurveyMonkey take a huge gulp and launch their new platform.

Publish your results

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Still working some kinks out on this feature, but feel free to try it. Click “account” and then “end survey,” then go to “manage survey data” and flip some of the graphs over to “public.”

You’ll then be able to publish results like these, for the weblog.

Preview some data slices

Monday, May 14th, 2007

The data is still jelling, but we’ve decided to release some preview slices for things like flossing, commutes and pet preferences. Here’s an aggregate view of those answers. You can see this data for individual blogs by clicking on the icons on the front page.

Blogs who have more than 20 responses to their own surveys can log in, click “account” and see data for age, sex, income, location, education level, party affiliations, party preferences, ethnicity, religion and, to wash all that dry data down, beer preferences. (Right now, this core data is locked private until the survey is completed so results don’t skew ongoing surveys.)

We’re playing around with badges that bloggers could use to link to their stats pages. Here are some ideas. Any preferences or suggestions?
