Counting Page Views Dont Call it a Business Model


first_imgWhile correlating user behavior to the business model is the only way to judge revenue performance, surprisingly few publishers can differentiate between a page view that is aligned to the business model vs. a page view that is not. Consequently, many publishers are chasing low value page views and jeopardizing their long-term viability. Might as well hire some bots…Matt Shanahan is vice president of strategy at Scout Analytics, a specialist in digital revenue optimization. Measuring the number of page views as a key performance indicator (KPI), is a growing practice among publishers. In fact, editorial and development teams are increasingly being rewarded for boosting page views, with some publishers even shaping their entire site just to generate page views.That is not a business model! Let me prove it with an extreme example.Any publisher can deploy bots to generate page views for their site. No advertiser will pay for those page views, because the page views have no advertising value. While page views could be used as a KPI by the editorial team to generate more content for bot consumption, no revenue is coming through the door to keep them employed.The right metric for publishers should be revenue performance indicators (RPI), which means the metrics tie directly to the business model. Many publishers are looking to build recurring revenue streams from loyal audience members, and in this case, RPIs such as audience size, loyalty, and level of engagement are meaningful. However, some publishers are relying on non-recurring revenue from SEO acquired visitors, and in this case, RPIs such as percentage share of search and time on site become more relevant. In paid content, RPIs such as price per article or price per device become critical. And for all of these business models, average revenue per user (ARPU) is the RPI for benchmarking efficiency and profit (see my post on ARPU here).last_img read more

Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow Last seen in 2017, the King Ranch name is coming back to the Ford Expedition, and it may be a tempting upgrade for buyers looking for just a little more bling.For the 2020 model year, Ford order guides show the big SUV will once again offer the King Ranch edition, slotting between the Limited and Platinum trims. Effectively, it might be a nice little half-step for buyers looking for extra gear without taking a full step into the expensive Platinum trim.CarsDirect, which first reported on the order guide on Friday, said the Expedition King Ranch will set a buyer back $74,290 after a mandatory destination charge. Adding four-wheel drive will cost an extra $3,130. It’ll also be available for both the standard Expedition and the larger Expedition Max; the latter will start at $76,985 including destination. Since Ford isn’t ready to show us the King Ranch just yet, all we can do is describe what’s set to differentiate the model from other Expeditions. Per the order guide, the exterior will sport a Stone Gray trim on the bumpers, roof rails and a set of power running boards. To beef things up further, there’ll be a set of 22-inch six-spoke aluminum wheels with painted pockets, too. Taking a seat inside the Expedition King Ranch will reveal loads of King Ranch branding, naturally. The interior will be awash in Del Rio leather with King Ranch logos embossed on each row of seats. The same logo will be present on the floor mats and aluminum door plates. A 360-degree camera with a split-view function will be standard equipment and the power-folding mirrors will match the rest of the exterior’s Stone Gray look.Ford hasn’t detailed the 2020 Expedition’s changes yet, but you can bet it will be keen to underscore the King Ranch’s return when it’s ready.
