As we continue to dive deeper into the advanced features of Google Ad Manager 360, we want to focus this week’s article on the best reporting features available to publishers. Let’s take a closer look!
With Google Ad Manager (GAM) 360, publishers can better analyze the costs incurred for monthly impressions using the ‘invoice impressions’ and ‘invoice unfilled impressions’ metrics in the report section.
Invoiced impressions: This metric will show all the impressions included within the GAM 360 invoice and include companion impressions. Free impressions will also be counted within this metric.
Invoicing for filled impressions are counted differently:
-Mobile app and video: counted when the ad is rendered according to video first-frame. Unfilled impressions are not billed.
-Any other: counted as downloaded impressions. Unfilled impressions get billed and are included within the “Invoiced unfilled impressions” metric
-Invalid traffic: these impressions are not included
Invoiced unfilled impressions: This metric shows the invoiced unfilled impressions.
As previously mentioned, unfilled impressions for mobile and video ads that Google Ad Manager did not fill an ad for does not get billed.
You can find out more about both these report metrics over here: https://support.google.com/admanager/table/7568664?ref_topic=7492017&visit_id=637414078323189556-1537044172&rd=1#invoiced-impressions.
This metric is great for publishers with multiple websites or those working with partner sites. Publishers can use the range of partner metrics to run reports regarding revenue data for partner sites and child domains added inside the GAM account:
Partner report metrics reflect host-partner revenue splits based on advanced setups. As the Google Ad Manager 360 account owner, you can set up different payment structures based on impression tiers and date ranges.
