Stay Informed with Po.st Viral Alerts
At RadiumOne the Po.st team is continually striving to incorporate new ways to improve the user interaction with our analytics platform. Our latest feature Po.st Viral Alerts will automatically update you when your content goes viral without logging into the reporting interface. When you select this option Po.st will notify you by email when there is a significant increase in shares or clicks for your site as a whole or a specific URL. A sample email can be seen bellow.
Alerts are set per profile for each user individually by shares or by clicks. You can choose whether to get emails immediately, at the end of the day, or as a weekly review. You determine the frequency to support your individual need. An immediate alert by shares for a specific URL is a good starting point for those looking to determine which types of posts are popular with your viewers, or if you want to be on top of any noteworthy changes in your site’s sharing activity. Daily or weekly alerts by share when applied to your domain can provide a quick observation into overall popularity of the content on your site.
