The January 2018 gShift software release is highlighted by three primary functionalities:

  • gShift Visibility Score Added to the Web Presence Report
  • Influencer Analytics via kurls
  • TapClicks/gShift kontextURL Integration

gShift Visibility Score added to the Web Presence Report

gShift’s comprehensive Web Presence Report has been further enhanced with the inclusion of the Visibility Score, which can be displayed via a guage or timeline based on the selected date range(s). The Visibility Score measures the relative organic search visibility of a kluster of keywords. Each position maintained in the Top 50 search results is assigned a relative value based on clickthrough probability and then the values for all positions across all keywords are aggregated and divided by the maximum possible score. This score is a useful metric when trying to determine relative visibility trends at a macro level for a group of topical keywords.

Please contact your Client Success Manager or support@gshiftlabs.com if you have any questions about how to effectively incorporate and analyze Visibility Scores in your Reports or Dashboards.

Influencer Analytics

Influencer Marketing has become a primary channel for many brands and agencies looking to build awareness, drive quality traffic and generate revenue. However, marketers are challenged in trying to track the effectiveness of influencers, their ability to engage with the right audience and deliver measurable results in terms of traffic or ROI. Enter Influencer Analytics powered by gShift kurls. Provide your influencers with unique URLs to include in their posts and build custom paths to see which influencers via which channels are delivering traffic resulting in conversions which may include form submissions, downloads or purchases. Go a step further and use kurls to see how influencers compare to other digital channels you may be using to distribute content and drive traffic.

Contact sales@gshiftlabs.com to find out more about how you can use kontextURLs to track and report on the performance and ROI of your influencer marketing campaigns.
