It never fails: I get tired of visiting post after post to keep track of all my content’s social engagement metrics like retweets and social bookmarks. The process for tracking social engagements has never been a simple one. It always ends with a ton of tabs open and indigestible information. Now I’ve had the pleasure of simplifying this problem through beta testing PostRank Analytics.
Admit it, you need an easier way to keep up with all the number of engagement metrics you can track. There’s hundreds of communities out there potentially sharing your idea, your product, and your services. Tracking them all can easily get out of hand or some confusing to manage. PostRank Analytics makes this look as easy as it should be.
How PostRank Can Work For You
First off, if you’re lost on why you should be tracking social engagements please read HOW TO: Measure Social Media ROI before you go any further.
With PostRank, I can manage some of my most important social engagement metrics. I’ll get an “engagement score”, which is the total of all of my social engagement metrics along with a thorough breakdown of the score for individual services. From a fantastic dashboard view I’m tracking social engagements such as:
- Twitter mentions
- Twitter Retweets
- Delicious Social Bookmarks
- Diigo Social Bookmarks
- Friendfeed Conversations
- Blog Comments
For some engagements, PostRank will even pull in specific data such as who retweeted or replied to a post, or provide a shortcut where I can see more detailed analytics for services such as Delicious that already offer this feature.
