GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 5 Experience with WebMeasure in Norway A critical test period which might end by WebMeasure becoming standard for measuring traffic on the websites. Norsk Gallup Institutt has installed WebMeasure at our home page gallup.no and on several large external sites. The installation and reporting of the data has gone smoothly, with the exception of Java-applet. As it turns out, it takes an unduly amount of time for some users to open the page because of Java-applet.
GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 6 On-line reporting: Data for an electronic newspaper in Norway Summary Number of visits per hour Top 10 sections by exposures Average visit duration in seconds
GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 7 2. Web interviewing by Pop-up surveys
GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 8 Quality and response rate on Pop-up surveys As many as 2 out of 3 Internet users state it to be unlikely for them to answer Pop- up surveys on the Internet! Only 30% were willing to fill out even very short and simple questionnaires! 7% of the respondents stated that they have given incorrect information when filling out Pop-up surveys. Percentage 397 interviews among those who have used Internet at least once the last month.
GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 9 WHY such a low response rate? Different culture among the surfers “Difficult” audience on the net: Younger, modern oriented etc. Poor questionnaire design Technical problems due to downloading time, different browsers, different and illegible computer screen pictures. The length of the questionnaires Lack of incentives Problems due to anonymity
GALLUP Grunnlag for bedre beslutninger 10 Low response rate and self selection WHO answers Pop-up surveys? A research project with NRK and Norsk Regnesentral. 20.000 interviews by CATI about satisfaction and attitudes towards NRK Interaktiv. The CATI interviews will in their turn be analysed in connection with a Pop-Up survey on NRK.no.

Consumer & Media and Gallup’s Web Topp Gallup‘s Web Topp Weekly (estimated from the frequency question) and daily reach (yesterday) are measured by Consumer & Media. Data are reported to the customers by e-mail, made available electronically by Pulsar Internett, Gallup PC and published on Gallup’s homepage. For the time being, the Web Topp acts as the only “official” survey for Norwegian websites, but can be supplied by WebMeasure within the year.
