New trials after 19th August - how to edit our automated metrics

We've separated the outlet level data (monthly audience and Domain Authority) from engagements and views. Click on the edit option on any of those metrics to edit them

Click Save when you're done.

How can I tell if a metric has been edited manually?

For our own metrics (engagements and views) you'll see a "verified by CoverageBook" tick which indicates this is our automated data.

If you manually edit a metric it'll disappear.

And for the outlets metrics, editing the numbers will remove the SimilarWeb and MOZ logos.

How do I go back to CoverageBook's default data?

Just retype our automated number back in and hit save to restore the verified logos

Changing outlet level data will update all your coverage from the same publications

if you edit an outlet level metric, like the monthly visits or DA score of a website, we'll remember this change and apply it to all your other coverage from the same outlet.
