Profit Attribution is an important feature that reports campaign ROI and meaningful information to support your traffic acquisition decisions. In the Profit Attribution report, you will be able to see your campaign revenues, campaign costs, the percentage of suspicious and invalid traffic, and more by UTM value. In this article, we’ll show you how to use the Profit Attribution report. Let’s jump right in!
When breaking down the revenue by utm_values, you will have much more control over your buying strategies. This report supports the following UTMs:

To get data on cost and Campaign ROI, start by connecting your buy-side accounts with PubGuru.
On the left-hand panel, click Account Connections > Buy-Side Connections. Take a look at how easy it is to connect your accounts, as shown below.

As a publisher, protecting your ad accounts from invalid traffic and ad fraud is critical to your success! Be sure to only partner with genuine traffic providers and not those that send fake or bot traffic. If a certain source brings a high level of suspicious and invalid traffic, discontinue working with them as soon as possible. Keep your site and earnings protected by being on top of every activity coming in. Traffic Cop integration keeps the bad actors out so you can focus on what matters most.

Return on Investment provides data on whether you are earning or losing money from the campaigns you’re running. This guides your decision to continue with the campaign, adjust, or switch to another.
Small sample data (highlighted in yellow) means that a particular utm_value didn’t have enough data to estimate a revenue result with good statistical relevance.
Estimated data will show data estimation for today’s date. If the box is not checked, it will present past data based on Google Ad Manager. Estimated data is based on PubGuru’s model, which takes into account historical, Google Ad Manager, and Ad Network data.
The following metrics have been added to the profit attribution report in order to provide our users with more useful information about their running campaigns:
Click Rate – The percentage of clicks on the link that generate impressions.
Users Reached – Whether or not users are converted, reach lets us know how many customers are actually able to see our message during an ad campaign.
Users Conversions – The conversion rate is a metric used to measure the success of a campaign, showing the percentage of visitors that convert from an ad.
Cost Per Conversion – The cost per conversion metric tells pubs how much they are paying for each lead or sale.
Emails Unsubscribed – The absolute number of emails that unsubscribed from the publisher’s list. Once the publisher has a lead unsubscribing from their campaigns, they don’t recommend sending any other emails until the person shows interest again.
Email Unsubscription Rate – The percentage of users who opted out of the publisher’s mailing list. A high unsubscription rate can harm email performance, marking pub as spam with email providers.
Data Transfer Support– Earlier publishers had to schedule reports from the report builder to get this data but now enterprise publishers who would like to see data transfer stats on the profit attribution report can analyze their data in the dashboard rather than on a CSV via email.
