For an explanation of key performance indicators that you can review to understand the effectiveness of your advertising campaign, see Interpreting a campaign's key performance data.
|Expand||Counted each time an ad expands.|
|Impression||Counted each time a viewer loads the webpage where an ad is embedded.
Impressions are a measure of how often people are presented with the opportunity to view your ad. For campaigns purchased on a CPM (cost per thousand impressions) basis, impression count is a way to confirm that advertisers receive as many impressions as they pay for.
|Video Start||Counted each time a viewer takes an action to play or replay an ad. Video Start actions vary by play mode:
|25%, 50%, 75%, 100% Quartiles||Counts how many viewers reach a specific quartile of an ad.|
|Average % Complete||Percentage of viewers who completed an ad (100% / Video Starts).|
|Average % Viewed||Percentage of an ad that viewers watched, averaged across all viewers.|
|Minutes Watched||Total number of minutes all viewers of an ad watched.|
|Video Start Rate||Measures active viewer interest. Calculated by dividing Video Starts by Impressions (Video Starts/Impressions). (In-Banner Video ads only)|
|Clickthrough||Counted when viewers click an element in an ad, such as an image overlay or a widget, and are taken to an external webpage.
Note: Companion ad clicks are not included in Clickthroughs for In-Stream Video ads.
