Stories are one of the main sections of Realtime which hold all of the articles. Stories have a timestamp and they are sorted in descending order so the newest story is always on top.
Each story has icons that indicate that story was posted on some social network or newsletter. Stories also have graphs that you can use to see how well the story is progressing without clicking on them.
Some stories have a Euro currency icon which indicates that a particular story is a paid article.
As in Stream, click on the story you can see more details about that story. Story updates and acts regarding that article info are divided into 5 sections: Reach, Social Actions, Stream, Story Value Engine, and Numbers.
The Reach section shows how well your article is getting to your readers. It is further divided into Pageviews, Origins, and Details.
Pageviews show how many times your article has been read. Performance is multiplied by 1000, which means in this case that there are 69000 pageviews. Notice that there are two circles in pageviews. The green circle represents the number of page views and white circles represent expectations for this article, in this case, 21000.
Origins and Details show where your page views are coming from and at which period. In the Details, section performance is multiplied by 100.
Small grey icons on the bottom represent where the article is published. Point icon shows publication time, the Twitter icon for Twitter, Home icon for Home page, Play button for a video on the article, and F icon for Facebook. You will receive some notifications base on this, in this example, you will receive notifications article is getting a lot of Facebook traffic but it isn’t posted on it, and later in the period when the article is added on Facebook, you will see an F icon appearing on the section.
Details section is showing traffic numbers. There are a couple of categories:
Internal - Represents the readers moving from one article to another inside your website
Direct - Represents everything that is not known by the referrer. Most of the traffic is clicks on links that people send to each other via communication apps or groups. The majority of that traffic is something we call Dark Social (What's App, Facebook Messenger, Viber, etc.). Direct Web means that traffic is coming from the website and Direct App is coming from the application. Note: if people visit your site via phone browser, that visit will be recorded as Direct Web.
Search - Represents the readers coming from browser search for that particular story: Google (Except Google News, that is a separate category), Bing, Yahoo, etc.
Other - Represents the readers coming from other sites that post your articles
The Social score works in a similar way as the Reach section.
The Stream shows a list of all notifications and acts regarding that article. On the right side, you can see where it is posted, and if you click on for example Facebook icon, it will lead you to the Facebook post of that article, same for Twitter and Youtube.
Story Value Engine is showing Predictions and Conversions. Predictions show how big the reach will be based on the author and the section. Conversions work on the same principle if you have a subscription system.
Numbers show more detailed information for example average reading time or likes on Facebook, etc.
