Intent: The intent of this change is to ensure better reading experience while maintaining or
increasing the value that Sportskeeda brings to our creator community.
Changes: For all the longer articles and listicles, the internal page view computing system will compute more page views than one if the reader reads through the article (scroll depth). So for a long listicle with one actual page view, revenue will get computed on up to 4 page views. The reads being reported
Process: Over the past few weeks, Sportskeeda Engineering has been running experiments on a fraction of our audience to calculate how much this change affects our page views and revenues. The most important metric for Sportskeeda while making this change was the revenue our content creators make. Based on the findings, the page view triggers were calibrated so as to positively impact revenue for content creators.
Outcome: The new version of single page listicles makes for a more pleasant reading experience and makes more revenue for our content creators.
