Top 5 Scoop Press Releases for the month of August 2014

From Scoop Insights

During the month of August 2014 Scoop published a total of 3,658 press releases. Over 1,500 of these press releases were published into the politics section. This is a large percentage, but no surprise on the lead up to a General Election.

However, the most read press release by our NZ audience on Scoop over the month of August was ‘Stan Walker Sings Te Reo for Maori Language Week’. This release was published on Friday the 18th of July (just a few days before Maori Language week began).

The release was also the most read press release for July gaining a large number of views during Maori Language week. Since then the interest has continued on a slow decline till the end of August.

The average time on the page for this release was 4 minutes 59 seconds during July showing a high level of engagement, during the month of August this fell, though only to 3 minutes and 23 seconds.

A high percentage of the audience reading this release in August was attributable to Google organic search.

The following five press releases were the most read press releases (by NZ page view numbers) according to Google Analytics on Scoop for the month of August 2014.
