The Goodviews algorithm
The Goodviews algorithm starts with data. Each day, we scrape millions of data points from a broad set of sources. This data includes: Google Trends search volume, pageviews and other data from popular TV websites, social media activity from services including Reddit and Twitter, torrent download data, and more.
Each of these pieces of data tell a different story. The Goodviews algorithm analyzes, weighs, and combines this data to create daily charts of shows ranked in what we think is the most accurate representation of their popularity and engagement online.
The algorithm currently focuses on the US market. We are constantly updating and improving our algorithm and data to make sure we have the most accurate charts possible.
Why measure online engagement?
The TV industry is changing fast. Traditional networks have long relied on advertising, but many new streaming networks are shifting to a subscription model. Subscribers are won through word of mouth. Cultural relevancy. Online engagement. Buzz.
We believe these metrics are more important than viewership numbers. The Goodviews algorithm is tailored to let you know which shows people are buzzing about, updated on a daily basis to keep up with this fast-changing landscape.
