What is the difference between data in the Dashboard and Accounting views?
Your Dashboard uses simple click data collected by an independent third-party API to provide real-time estimates of activity for the specified date range. This view is an approximate sketch of what's happening with your shares as soon as data becomes available.
You must enable Facebook Insights Analyst permissions in order for Contempo to track, record and display Facebook Instant Article clicks, post reach and CTR data. If you have not approved a request from The Social Edge - High Value business manager account for each page, please contact Customer Service.
The Accounting view represents your actual earnings to date for the specified month. Data varies from the Dashboard due to site-specific reporting (Google Analytics) and Facebook Instant Article calculations (only available with Facebook permissions). It takes a lot of processing to balance these data sources which requires a delay--typically 4 hours--before your data is visible. The Accounting page gives you the most accurate data based on the number of real people that have engaged with your content.
You may download a more detailed list of all links recorded during the selected month by clicking Download .CSV in the upper right corner of the window.
How often is my link traffic / accounting data updated in Contempo?
- Accounting data (post totals, clicks and revenue) is updated every 4 hours.
Can I add my own UTM to or shorten the links I create in Contempo?
No. Contempo uses sophisticated methods to track links--you don’t have to worry about a thing! Be advised that any manipulation / change to the link after you’ve generated it in Contempo will disqualify it for payment.
