Tim Martin, general manager media, Roy Morgan Research, says: “Roy Morgan’s audience research provides a true and usable measure of the number of people visiting websites or using apps across different devices.
“The recent argy-bargy between REA and Domain over technical aspects of their website visitation numbers highlights just how muddy the waters have become for advertisers, agencies and investors needing a simple, consistent and independent measurement of audiences.
“Roy Morgan’s audience measurements simply show how many Australians visited digital media. We measure consistently over time and consistently for different sites. That way we can always compare apples with apples.”
