Understanding the report
- The aim of the report is to give an detailed overview on a particular campaign
- The top row gives you the headline metrics ('Impressions', 'Clicks', 'Average CTR x 10,000'), aggregated against all your selected campaigns.
- 'Average CTR x 10,000 [Aggregation]', gives the percentage CTR for a campaign over time. Changing the 'Aggregation' filter will change the x-axis of this line graph.
Example I am looking to report on the success of a particular campaign and I want to understand how many impressions it served vs how many people clicked on it.
From my results I can see that
- Across the campaign (hidden in this example) over the past day, the campaign served 26.3M impressions, 2.8K clicks occurred, making the CTR 108%.
- From the line graph, we can see that there is a spike in clicks overnight on 27th November, but at other times it stays relatively low.
