Reads by source, device, and location
This section allows you to see how your reader is accessing your Turtl Doc for the filter that you applied at the top of the page, for example, you might want to see:
Source: See how people opened your content. Did they open your Doc from a direct link (for example from an email) or did they come from your website or a social network? Using this data can help you decide where to promote your Doc to gain more readers.
We detect the source through the HTTP request sent by the user landing on Turtl Doc to our server.
See our article on the source metric for more details.
Device: See what devices people are using to read your Turtl Doc. This is split between desktop, mobile, and tablet. While Turtl content is responsive and optimized for various devices, it is still useful to monitor what readers are using to access your content. For example, are readers coming from your website using desktop, and readers from social channels using mobile? Understanding this could let you know whether you need to put more attention on your mobile versions, for example.
We detect the device type through the HTTP request sent by the user landing on Turtl Doc to our server.
Location: See where your readers are located physically - understanding the location of your audience is important for tailoring your content. You will be able to see if your content is making an impact in the intended market, but the data could also inform decisions on targeting other regions.
We detect the location through IPs. We use the GEOIP2 database to convert IPs to geolocation.
