Recommendations of Most popular criteria


Level 1

Hi all!

I have implemented Recommendations of certain tourist places that recommends most popular tourist places for the new user using Most popular criteria in Adobe Target. I have got certain changes on my website, but is there any way I can validate that these places are actually popular across the site? How can we make sure that the entities recommendation is showing me the correct order? If I can use Adobe workspace, how can I do that?

Please do let me know incase of any info.

Hi @AnalyticsEnthusiast 

If you wanted to sanity check the recommendation results from a "popularity" based Criteria I would suggest 

  1. "Download data" from the Recommendations Activity - this will download a .csv with the back end data from your Criteria.
  2. In Analytics Workspace, create a Freeform Table with the equivalent Dimension and Metric to your Recommendations Entity (e.g. an evar) & Popularity based Algorithm (e.g. views, purchases or other analytics metric).
  3. Compare the data sets.
