Introduction to Insights

An introduction to the Insights module in the Permutive platform

What is Insights

The Insights tab gives you a holistic overview of the users who are visiting your site and their on-site behaviours. 

There are two different types of audiences you can analyse using Permutive Insights: the users in the segments you have created and the users who have interacted with your Google Ad Manager campaigns on your site. 

Audience

The Audience section is where you can get detailed insights into how users in your segments behave on your site, from how many articles they are reading per session to their most-read articles.

You can filter the Audience view by either one or more segments, or by tags. Tags correspond to the different tags you have allocated to the segments you have built. For example, you may wish to filter the Audience Insights tab by all segments that have been tagged with 'Politics'.

To change the Audience filters, click 'Edit':

Once you have chosen the Audience you want to gain insights on, open up the second filter by clicking 'Edit', as shown below, where you can filter by a variety of other parameters:

  • Date Range - you can choose between the last day, the last 7 days, the last 30 days or a custom range.

Note: As Permutive collects first-party data using a first-party cookie, your analytics has an unlimited lookback, going back to when you first deployed Permutive on your website.

Once you are satisfied with the filters, there are five tabs to navigate between:

  • Engagement - a visualisation of how many users are in a segment and how much time they spend on site
  • Technographics - an insight into the device type, platform, and country of the filtered audience
  • Index & Overlap - an understanding of how audiences relate and compare to each other, in both an index and an overlap
  • Third-Party Index - Beta - results of how your audiences index with different categories and providers of third-party data, including demographics, B2B, consumer intent and automobile and travel intent
  • Content Read - a customisable dashboard that reflects the most useful custom properties you are sending into Permutive from the Pageview Event. This could be anything from the most highly indexed author to the most highly indexed article category and can give you an insight into which sections of your site this audience is consuming the most

Tip: You can use these audience insights to create rich and compelling data narratives about your audiences and use them to optimise your RFP responses:

Campaign

The Campaign section is where you can get detailed insights into the users that engaged in a particular campaign or line item

The campaign data is based on the Slot events: SlotClicked and SlotViewable 

You can filter the Campaign view by the campaign ID, which corresponds to the Order ID in Google Ad Manager. 

To choose the relevant campaign ID, click 'Edit':

Once you have chosen the campaign you want to gain insights on, open up the second filter by clicking 'Edit', as shown below, where you can filter by a variety of other parameters:

  • Date Range - you can choose between the last day, the last 7 days, the last 30 days or a custom range.

Note: As Permutive collects first-party data using a first-party cookie, your analytics has an unlimited lookback, going back to when you first deployed Permutive on your website. This can be useful for optimising seasonal campaigns.

  • Line Item - you can take your insights more granular by looking at specific line items that fall under campaigns
  • Slot Clicked or Slot Viewable - you can decide which engaged audience you want to filter by: those who clicked on an ad slot or those who viewed at least 50% of an ad slot for one second or more
  • Domain - if you have Permutive deployed across multiple domains, you can filter by them here
  • Device type
  • Countries - Permutive enriches Events with geo-data so you can get a better understanding of the geo-locations of your users
  • Platform

Once you are satisfied with the filters, there are five tabs to navigate between:

  • Engagement - a visualisation of how many users either clicked or viewed an ad slot relating to the filtered campaign, and how much time they spend on site
  • Technographics - an insight into the device type, platform, and country of the users engaging in the campaign
  • Index & Overlap - an understanding of how the audience who interacted with the campaign relate and compare to the segments in your project, in both an index and an overlap
  • Third-Party Index - Beta - results of how the users who clicked or viewed the campaign index with different categories and providers of third-party data, including demographics, B2B, consumer intent and automobile and travel intent
  • Content Read - a customisable dashboard that reflects the most useful custom properties you are sending into Permutive from the Pageview Event. This could be anything from the most highly indexed author to the most highly indexed article category and can give you an insight into which sections of your site these users are consuming the most

Tip: You can use these campaign insights to not only optimise campaigns mid-flight but to also create rich data-insights into campaign performance to feed back to advertisers; this can help with rebookings and solidifying partnerships as a high value-add:
