Presentation Analytics with LinkedIn's SlideShare
Just a few months after making many of its premium features free, LinkedIn's SlideShare presentation platform has announced they are now providing users with an improved analytics system to help them understanding what's working in their content.
Slideshare users now have access to details on geographic distribution, traffic sources (how content is discovered) and timing (featuring not just the days of the week or month that perormance better but also seasonal variations).
LinkedIn also indicated it has made changes to improve view count accuracy by automatically removing views generated from bot activity (web crawlers). If you are a regular SlideShare user, LinkedIn revealed that view counts could either be either lower or higher as a result of the change. If you're a regular publisher on that platform, it might be a good idea now to check to see if any fluctuations occured as a result of the change.
