How can I measure engagement with my post?
We all want to see our work having an impact, and measuring the analytics of your post can help you see how far your work is reaching and how people are engaging with your blog post. Read on to find out how to explore how your post is performing.
To view the analytics for all of your posts, navigate to the ‘My Network’ tab in the top right hand corner (shown right) and click on ‘Analytics’.
This will take you to page showing the views, likes, comments and the number of people who clicked through to ‘Related content’ (this is the clicks to your research articles for all of your posts).
You can change the time period you are looking at by clicking on the date range and selecting specific dates, or a period such as the current week/month/year or previous week/month/year.
Boosting views and engagement
You may see an increase in views that corresponds to when your post was shared in daily, weekly, or monthly digests from the Community, when you shared the post with your networks, or if your post was shared through social media. You can also boost opportunities for engagement by sharing your post through your own social media channels, as well as encouraging your team and institution to do the same.
