FAQs

  • Why are large sites (like amazon.com, facebook.com, google.com, etc.) not on the Audience Overlap table when looking at a specific country filter?

    We present each site-country on this page for the top 1,000 most relevant sites only. The most relevant sites will not necessarily be the most overlapping sites, and relevancy acts as a sort of filter to show only interesting results. The reason is that big sites such as facebook.com, amazon.com, and so on will always have a higher overlap with other sites, and we want to address this bias. Hence, sometimes big sites you would expect to see in this list are not included in the top 1,000 most relevant sites to the site in question and will not appear.

    Another related point is the fact that for each specific country, users tend to use specific or regional sites for their needs (shopping, price comparisons, etc.). For this reason, when looking at overlapping sites with a specific country filter, you are less likely to see the very big sites, whereas the Worldwide perspective would give more weight to the more globally and widely used sites (e.g., amazon.com).

  • What's the difference between the Cross-Browsing Interests table from Audience Interests and the Audience Overlap feature

    The Cross-Browsing Interests table shows the overlap of websites ‘head-to-head’ but doesn’t show the full audience reach and potential. Audience Overlap allows end-users to compare up to five websites and see the overlap across all websites

  • What time frame is Audience Loyalty based on?

    Loyalty is calculated based on monthly unique visitors. So, if a user has visited another site within the same month, they will be counted.

  • Do you support the worldwide country filter?

    Yes.

  • Is only desktop data available?

    Yes.
