When you use the Recent Blog widget on an overview page and choose the option to "Show Full Content," you can't really be sure that your "views" are accurate measurements of who actually read the blog post because any number of people could show up on the page and read the content there. But when you don't show full content all you get is a headline, which is often not enticing enough or attractive enough (it's really just a list of links) to get people to read.
What's the balance and if you do opt for the Full Content view, how do you get accurate measurements of viewership?
Any thoughts or best practices would be helpful.
Thanks and Happy Collaborating!
If the headline isn't enticing or attractive enough to get readers, that in itself is a problem worth addressing. If you think of all the other places in Jive where all people are going to see is the headline (search results, streams), focusing on good headlines is really key to readership. Just like it is for other online media. Remind people they are writing for an audience, and need to think in those terms.
