The campaign management views include comprehensive report data. The available reports help you to identify the packages and placements that are performing well and those that need your attention. Quick action buttons also make you more productive.
The Campaigns view opens to a set of performance data charts and a list of all campaigns within your account.
You can customize time series trend charts across all campaigns using three metrics. By default, data for Net Spend, Impressions, and Net CPM are included in separate charts (trellis charts). You can optionally change the metrics. To enable hourly data in the time series trend charts, change your date selection to a single day (Today, Yesterday, or a specific day).
You also can optionally overlay the three metrics for easy detection of anomalies and areas in which to improve scale or performance.
By default, each campaign row includes pacing and delivery metrics. Pacing metrics include Gross Spend (Lifetime), which includes a gauge of the actual on-target spend versus the expected on-target spend across all packages in the campaign, so you can identify under-performing campaigns at a glance. You can optionally change the column view or even create a custom column view.
You can further customize the data tables in additional ways and filter the visible data.
To view a campaign in more detail, click the campaign name.
Within a campaign, you can filter data based on the campaign entity: Packages, Placements, and Ads. You can further filter the visible data to include only the packages, placements, or ads that you want to see.
For each campaign, you can customize time series trend charts with three metrics, which are available in each entity view. The same metrics are persisted across all trend charts for the campaign.
See the “Chart View” section on cross-campaign metrics for more information.
In each entity tab, each row includes pacing and delivery metrics, by default, but you can change the column view or even create a custom column view to apply across all subtabs for the campaign. You can further customize the data tables in additional ways. Each data table includes a Subtotals row, which shows either the sum or the average value of each metric across all visible rows.
For each placement, you can open a (detail view Inspector), which includes the following in-depth data:
Sites: All of the sites on which the placement has had impressions.
The Sites tab includes search and filter features, the same standard and custom column view options that are available on the main page, and an Exclude button in each row so you can quickly exclude a site from the placement.
Ads: All of the ads in the placement.
The Ads tab includes search and filter features, the same standard and custom column view options that are available on the main page, and quick action buttons in each row, such as Pause (so you can quickly pause an ad).
Frequency: Data for each ad frequency level for the placement, including:
Inventory: Information about all deals targeted by the placement.
The Inventory tab enables quick troubleshooting by showing performance statistics, such as Auctions, Bids, and Win Rate. The tab includes search and filter features, the same standard and custom column view options that are available on the main page, and quick action buttons in each row, including Edit, View Report, and Auction Insights for further troubleshooting.
|Issue||Possible Cause||Actions to Take|
|Zero Auctions||The publisher hasn’t started sending bid requests.||Contact the publisher to activate the deal.|
|The deal was set up incorrectly, such as by entering an incorrect external deal ID.||Confirm the deal details and edit the deal.|
|Auctions but no Bids||The placement targeting doesn’t match the incoming bid requests for the deal.
For example, a placement might be targeting a geography that isn’t eligible for the deal.
|Edit the placement targets as needed to avoid targeting mismatches.|
|The placement doesn’t have an active ad with the required media type for the deal.||Create and attach an ad with the correct media type to the placement.|
|The placement doesn’t have adequate budget.||Increase the placement budget to allow bidding on incoming requests.|
|The placement flight dates don’t overlap with the impression delivery dates for the deal.||Edit the placement’s flight dates as needed.|
|Low Win Rate||The placement’s maximum bid (floor or fixed) is below the minimum required by the deal.||Increase the placement’s Max Bid as needed.|
|The placement uses pre-bid filters that limit bidding.||Lower the thresholds of the pre-bid filters to allow more bidding.|
|Audience targeting for the placement is too restrictive.||Check if the specified audience targets have enough active users, and expand the audience if possible.|
You can export the data on the Sites, Ads, or Frequency tab to your browser’s default download folder as a report in XLSM format.
For other data breakouts, view the campaign-level reporting pages. The report includes sections on Geography, Device, Viewability, and Audience Performance data.
