Adwords For Video Gets Reporting Enhancements

Google has added three new measurement features to the AdWords for video reporting interface. The enhancements are designed to adwords-for-videomake reporting more goal-oriented and to make it easier to compare campaign performance across platforms and other forms of media.

Reach & Frequency

Reach and frequency metrics, including Average Impression Frequency and Average View Frequency, have been added to the interface to give you more insight into how many unique viewers have seen your ad and the average number of times they’ve seen it. It’s now easier to tell if your ads are getting enough impressions to get noticed but not so many that they are bombarding users.

To view these metrics on a campaign, ad or targeting group level, click on Columns >> Customize Columns and look under the Performance section.

Below is the complete list of metrics now available in the reporting interface.
