What do the reports mean?

Articles Read

Articles read is the number of articles read in an issue on both the PressReader App and website.

When an issue is open, you have access to all articles within. As a reader, you can browse the entire issue or part of it however, only articles in Text View are accounted for. If you decide to use the Page View option and zoom in on articles without clicking on specific headlines, there is no analytic way to track this as 'Articles Read' in statistics.  

This is a good indicator of how much content is being consumed by users when issues are opened.

Issues Read

Issues read indicates the number of publications consumed from both PressReader App and website. In order to have an issue recorded as read, the issue needs to be fully downloaded. This can be accessed through the 'Publications' tab on the web platform, or by downloading the issue on the mobile app. 

HotSpot Connections

HotSpot connections is equivalent to the number of sessions (timeout is 10 minutes by default) generated at a PressReader HotSpot.

When a PressReader Hotspot is detected from PressReader Application or website, a session is created with a unique ID. These sessions are grouped by Hotspot in our back end database. One HotSpot User (unique ID) can access the HotSpot multiple times.

This statistics is a good indicator of how frequently PressReader was accessed during a period of time.

Titles read

This list shows the top titles opened (downloaded and read) in a Hotspot.

The analytics provide, name of titles with an issue date, number of User Count and number of Issue Count ranked by number of Issue Count.
