FAQs

What are the stats to look out for?

The stats to keep an eye on are these three things:

  • Impressions (Impr.) - The stats on how many times an ad has been viewed by users

  • Clicks - The stats on how many times an ad was clicked on by users

  • Click-Through Rate (CTR) - The Clicks and Impressions expressed as a percentage

These are what the Ad Manager tracks, and they help with checking if your ads are running on your website. Also, these are important to give for your advertisers as they help provide proof users are seeing and clicking the ads on the site.
