comScore Brings its Single Metric for Global Multi-Platform Audiences to France

Webedia is the First French Publisher to Assess its Total Digital Audience Number, Providing Validation That Their Unduplicated Global Reach is 177 Million Visitors.

Paris, France, 11th July 2017 – comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world, today announced an important audience measurement “first” in France in delivering a single unduplicated multi-platform global audience metric across desktop computers, smartphones and tablets.

This global audience number leverages comScore’s proprietary multi-platform audience de-duplication methodology combined with comprehensive tagging to produce a measure of unique people being reached across the globe. This single audience metric represents the unduplicated reach across PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets and accounts for website, app and video audiences.

This metric is available to all global media brands and was tested in France for the first time by the leading Entertainment French publisher Webedia. Using the new measure, Webedia’s unduplicated global audience was recorded at 177 million visitors for April 2017 – a full 236 percent higher than Webedia’s global desktop-only audience of 52.6 million.

“As more and more websites compete in a global marketplace, we are very excited to provide a credible and independent international audience reach number across all platforms and geographies,” said Jacques Tchenio, Vice President Sales France at comScore. “We believe this approach offers great potential to other global or multi-market media brands seeking to present their full offering to pan-national advertisers and their agencies.”

“comScore provides us with a unique solution to release for the first time a global audience of our digital brands, including our strong Talent networks on YouTube”, said Antoine Meunier, Marketing Director at Webedia. “comScore’s ability to provide unduplicated multi-platform insights is especially valuable to global advertisers and media buyers who want to understand the incremental reach we can deliver through our mobile and YouTube initiatives.”
