Helpful information for your Analyst:
Black Crow generates real-time predictions of how likely users are to achieve a specific action (typically purchase) in the future.
Inside Heap, the user property for Black Crow looks something like BlackCrow|site|3 with a value of 2
The structure of the key in the user profile is made up of three parts separated by a pipe |
- Vendor name: A hardcoded static string BlackCrow to help label what is being set by Black Crow
- Comparison group: A dynamic field that is either site, page or some other custom value that a Black Crow team member will work with you on creating.
- Group count: A number that tells you the number of possible buckets a user could be grouped in. Common values are: 3, 10, or 20
The structure of the value in the user profile is a single integer
- Score: The prediction generated by Black Crow in the form of an integer, which can be as low as 1 and as high as the group count.
Group Count - Black Crow distributes scores on a page view basis. This means that:
- Group count of 3 = 33% of page views in each score
- Group count of 10 = 10% of page views in each score
- Group count of 20 = 5% of page views in each score
Comparison Group - a collection of page views the current page view that is scored is compared against.
- site = group means the score is relative to all page views across the whole website
- page = group means the score is relative to all page views that happened on this same URL path
- A score is an integer representation of the raw prediction of your propensity model benchmarked against a comparison group. A higher score represents that this user is more likely to complete the action your model is predicting compared to other page views in the given comparison group.
- A score of 10 with a group count of 10, and a comparison group of site means this page view is in the top 10% likelihood of all page views to complete a purchase.
- A score of 2 with a group count of 3, and a comparison group of page and a URL path equal to “/cart” means this page view is in the middle 33% likelihood of all cart page views to complete a purchase.
