Hearst Unveils Buzzing@Hearst Trend-Detecting Capability for Advertisers

Hearst announced that its trend detector, Buzzing@Hearst, is now open to advertisers, allowing them to programmatically target top-performing content across Hearst's media properties. Born out of years of research and development, Buzzing@Hearst analyzes data-driven signals to constantly monitor trending articles, enabling marketers to uniquely marry their message to what's hot in real-time. Buzzing@Hearst is an extension of MediaOS, Hearst's proprietary analytics-driven content distribution platform. Buzzing monitors thousands of active articles across Hearst's digital ecosystem, including newspapers, magazines and television channels, and provides information about trending articles that editors can curate for their sites. Marketers are then able to serve up ads on pages that are receiving the most audience engagement. Linked directly to DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP), Buzzing allows for a direct data connection between Hearst's editors and digital sales teams, offering an opportunity for premium programmatic ad sales on trending pages. Advertisers's content can then be served alongside Hearst's editorial content that is demonstrating the levels of engagement at any given moment. Buzzing@Hearst looks at hundreds of signals, refreshed every 90 seconds, to create a 'Buzzing Score' of 1-20, a rating assigned to every article to determine its popularity and interest among Hearst's 350 million unique visitors. Buzzing scores are reflective of a variety of factors, giving advertisers an opportunity to advertise on pages based on everything from audience engagement to social engagement, in addition to other metrics. By integrating Buzzing@Hearst on every editor's dashboard, Hearst is able to constantly monitor for trending articles with the Buzzing Scores and curate content relevant to their publication. It also allows editors to receive instant feedback from readers and develop content more likely to resonate with audiences.
