How to Use Issuu Statistics
Issuu’s sophisticated statistics system is designed to show you all about how people read and engage with your digital content. These are updated every day at midnight UTC for Issuu publishers. In your Issuu account, your statistics are located at issuu.com/statistics. Issuu does not track unique readers, so if a reader views your content multiple times, all of their views are counted.
What does each Issuu statistic mean?
Impressions are the number of times that your publication was shown on the Issuu network, whether as a thumbnail in a feed, in search results or on websites with the content embedded.
Reads are counted when your publication is opened and a user performs an action by flipping the page, zooming, etc. or stays for more than two seconds.
Read Time is counted once the content has loaded for more than two seconds ie. when it is considered a Read. It will be presented in the hours:minutes:seconds format.
Average Time Spent is the Read Time divided by Reads.
Followers are the Issuu users who are following your account. These accounts receive updates when you publish something new on Issuu.
Likes are from Issuu users who have liked your content.
Shares are the number of times that your publication has been shared through the Share button.
Times Stacked are the number of times your content has been added to an Issuu Stack.
Link-Outs are the number of times that link(s) have been clicked on within your content.
