This session will highlight how a clear focus on maintaining and enhancing the quality of content for users will allow publishers to understand the value of engagement beyond quantity metrics like page views and unique visitors. We'll explore how Greatist has shifted its content strategy to focus on the value delivered from metrics such as time spent and pages per session, which in turn has led to a fully optimized SEO strategy, the opportunity for a broader audience to interact with our brand, and an increase in the overall value per user. We'll outline clear results and show how these metrics are key for boosting traffic from search as well as conversions to loyal platforms.


1. Content may be king, but engagement is royalty.
2. Prioritizing quality metrics over quantity metrics can increase the overall value per reader.
3. Make sure each of your platforms are working together. This will lead to larger audiences across your most loyal products.
4. More content isn't always the right strategy—creating fewer pieces of premium content can actually increase user satisfaction and engagement.
