That Google acquired Measure Map. Their home page sure looks pretty. But given I haven’t/can’t use it I don’t care – why all the buzz about something so little have experienced?
What I do care about though is integrated communications measurement – for that I’ll turn to the likes of Biz360. The ability to correlate performance across mediums, competitors, industries and topics is vital to getting a grip on marketing performance.
If Google imbeds Measure Map into it’s new reporting tools, that would be great. And then if they launch those new reporting tools, that will be greater. But if Biz360 can aggregate that reporting, that would be better.
And here is a whine, rather than Google running around making "interesting" acquisitions, I wish they would dramatically improve the utility and interface of their current reporting tools – the stuff in the public domain that the rest of us have to live with.
