Voices Heard Media Establishes Target “Share Rates” and “Content to Share Ratios” for Web...

Local, Sports, Music verticals have highest share rate; Entertainment, Lifestyle vertical close behind

PRLog - Sep. 29, 2011 - KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- KNOXVILLE, TN – Voices Heard Media reports on some new trends in share rates and content-to-share ratio, a critical but new analysis of how engaged visitors are on web sites and what content engages them. According to the blog Social Episodes, “This ratio gauges your content’s ability to travel beyond your Social Reach. The higher the engagement, the greater the probability that your content will be shared within your profiles’ social graph, driving new social prospects for your brand and products.”

“One of our critical objectives is to help our clients lure traffic from social media to their web sites, where visitors can be engaged directly,” explained Voices Heard Media’s founder and CEO Will Overstreet. “Share rates and content-to-share ratios help us understand what content and applications are most effective at doing that as well as gauging overall user engagement.”

Despite the importance of this data, few web publishers have been willing to share their internal data. Thus, Voices Heard Media analyzed data from events on its EventBox user engagement application during second quarter of 2011. The events were chosen according to specific vertical audiences but among different sizes of web publishers. The key results are:

   -  The average share rate across all events was 0.15%
   -  Share rates varied widely by audience:
       o  Sports averaged 1.80%
       o  Entertainment averaged 0.17%
       o  Music averaged 0.66%
       o  Lifestyle averaged 0.46%
       o  Automotive and machinery averaged 0.002%
   - The highest share rates (averaging 1.90%) were seen on smaller events on local news stations (television and radio), indicating that geographically-focused events may have higher share rates.
   -  There were no differences in share rates between large and small sites; what made a difference was the quality of content and its relevance to that audience.

From the data, VHM concludes that events targeting women tend to be shared on Facebook while events with a largely male audience tend to vary in their shares, but Twitter is usually dominant. More details will be released soon.
