Attribution Rule Settings: (All Custom, Conversion, Device, Geo, Segment, and Site reports with Conversion Metrics or Custom Goals columns; advertisers with Advertising Cloud conversion tracking only) Within the report, how to attribute conversion data in a series of events that lead to a conversion. You can choose more than one rule if you want to compare differences between the rules.

NOTE

Conversion paths include any impressions and clicks within the advertiser’s impression or click lookback windows, which are configured in Advertising Cloud Search. Clicks are given preference to impressions during conversion attribution. Any clicks in a conversion path receive full credit based on the attribution rule. Impressions receive credit only when no clicks are tracked in the conversion path.

  • Last Event: Attributes conversions to the last click or impression in the conversion path.

  • Weight Last Event More: Attributes conversions to all events in the conversion path but gives the most weight to the last event and successively less weight to the preceding events.

  • Even Distribution: Attributes conversions equally to each event in the conversion path.

  • Weight First Event More: Attributes conversions to all events in the conversion path but gives the most weight to the first event and successively less weight to the following events.

  • First Event: Attributes conversions to the first click or impression in the conversion path.

  • U-shaped: Attributes the conversion to all events in the conversion path but gives the most weight to the first and last events, with successively less weight to the events in the middle of the conversion path.

  • Display Only - Last Event: Attributes conversions to the last DSP click or impression in the conversion path. This includes video and connected TV ads and excludes clicks on Search ads.

  • Social Only: Last Event — Obsolete

Paths as Columns: (All Custom, Conversion, Device, Geo, Segment, and Site reports with Conversion Metrics or Custom Goals columns) Which types of conversions to report when prior events occurred on the same device. You can include up to three types. For each selected type, a separate column is included for each conversion metric and is appended with the specified suffix ((tl), (ct), or (vt)):

  • Total (TL) = CT + VT * VT weight: Includes conversions attributed to clicks (CT for click-through) and to impressions (VT for view-through). Conversions attributed to impressions are multiplied by the specified view-through weight. The default view-through weight is 100%, which means that conversions attributed to impressions are counted as 100% of the value of conversions attributed to clicks.

  • With Clicks (CT): Includes only conversions attributed to clicks.

  • Impressions Only (VT): Includes only conversions that were attributed to impressions because no clicks were tracked in the conversion path.

Cross Device Level: (All Custom, Conversion, Device, Geo, Segment, and Site reports with Conversion Metrics or Custom Goals columns; applicable only for advertisers with cross-device attribution) The level at which to track conversions: People or Household.

Cross-Device Breakout: (All Custom, Conversion, Device, Geo, Segment, and Site reports with Conversion Metrics or Custom Goals columns; applicable only for advertisers with cross-device attribution) The level of detail about cross-device conversions to include in the report. You can choose up to three levels, each of which will be included in a separate column, if you want a detailed breakout.

  • Total People (TP): Includes the total conversions, which includes both same-device conversions and cross-device conversions (if applicable). In the report, “(tp)” is appended to the conversion metric name and rule type.

  • Same Device (SD): Includes only conversions for which only a single device was tracked in the conversion path. In the report, “(sd)” is appended to the conversion metric name and rule type.

  • Cross Device (XD): Includes only conversions for which more than one device was tracked in the conversion path. In the report, “(xd)” is appended to the conversion metric name and rule type.

Conversion Reporting Based On: How to report conversion data:

  • Conversion Timestamp: (The default) Conversions will be associated with the conversion date.

  • Event Timestamp: Conversions will be reported based on the date of the impression or click that caused the conversion, as determined by the specified Attribution Rule Settings.
