Report on performance

Privacy & messaging reports

The Privacy & messaging report type shows data related to the way users interact with the messages you display in your sites or apps. The metrics available in the report can help you understand which messages are reaching users and how those users are interacting with your messages.

There are two ways to access your Privacy & messaging report:

  • Click Reporting, then Reports, and then New report, then change the Report type to "Privacy & messaging."
  • Click Privacy & messaging. Click Manage on one of the message type cards on the Privacy & messaging page. Then, click the View reports link on the metrics card.

Reports include data for all your sites and apps set up in Ad Manager, AdSense, and AdMob.


 

This article describes the following metrics and dimensions:


European regulations message reporting metrics

These metrics are available for the Ad Manager Privacy & messaging report. Data associated with these metrics begins to accumulate when they are first enabled in your Ad Manager account and they won't contain any data for previous dates.

  • European regulations consent rate
    Percentage of European regulations messages where the user consented to all of the purposes and vendors.

    Formula: (Messages where the user consented to all purposes and vendors) / (European regulations messages with an outcome)

    Includes instances where the user clicked "Consent" and where the user consented to all options in the custom consent flow. The denominator excludes messages without an outcome.

  • European regulations custom consent rate
    Percentage of European regulations messages where users made a consent choice after selecting "Manage options".

    Excludes instances where the user consented or rejected all purposes and vendors. The denominator excludes messages without any outcome.

    Note: The "Manage options" text is customizable and may be named something different in your message.

  • European regulations messages shown
    Number of times a European regulations message was shown to users.

  • European regulations no consent rate
    Percentage of European regulations messages where the user rejected all purposes and vendors.

    Includes instances where the user clicked "Do not consent" and where the user rejected all options in the custom consent flow. The denominator excludes messages without any outcome.

Ad blocking recovery message reporting metrics

These metrics are available to report on ad blocking recovery messages using the Ad Manager Privacy & messaging report. Data associated with these metrics begins to accumulate when they are first enabled in your Ad Manager account and they won't contain any data for previous dates.

  • Ad blocking recovery messages shown
    Number of times an ad blocking recovery message was shown to users.
  • Allow-ads conversion rate (cookie-based)
    The conversion rate (based on browser cookies) of users that saw the ad blocking recovery message and then chose to allow ads.

    Users may have seen the ad blocking recovery message prior to or during the report time frame.

    Formula: [Allow-ads conversions (cookie-based)] / [Ad blocking recovery messages shown] = [Allow-ads conversion rate (cookie-based)]

  • Ad blocking extension rate
    Percentage of page views where users had ad blocker extensions installed. Includes only Desktop page views.

    Formula: (Extension ad blocker page views) / (Page views)

    Note: Since mid-February 2024, we've removed page views that occurred on mobile and tablet devices from this metric. The change was applied retroactively to historical data.

Offerwall (Beta) message reporting metrics

These metrics are available to report on Offerwall messages using the Ad Manager Privacy & messaging report. Data associated with these metrics begins to accumulate when they are first turned on in your Ad Manager account and they won't contain any data for previous dates.

  • Estimated revenue from all sources (Beta) 
    Revenue earned through Offerwall, including Rewarded ad revenue and third-party integrations.

    Note:

    • Before February 29th, 2024, this metric included the total Rewarded ads revenue across the network, regardless of whether the ads were initiated from the Offerwall.
    • Currently, when this metric is split out by the "Domain" dimension, all revenue will be reported at the eTLD+1 level. Revenue generated from Offerwalls shown on subdomains will be aggregated at their eTLD+1.
    Money pledged through Supertab.co is included in the "Estimated revenue from all sources" metric; however, given that Supertab.co tabs may never be closed, it won't necessarily match the exact amount paid out to you.
  • Offerwall messages shown (Beta) 
    Number of times an Offerwall message was shown to users.
  • Offerwall successful engagement (Beta) 
    The number of messages where the user gained an entitlement.

    Daily breakdown of data. In Ad Manager, the data is shown in an extended format, such as Monday, January 18, 2016. The exported format is more compact, for example M/D/YY.

    Note: The exported date format is based on the language and/or location associated with the Google account of the person creating the report. In reports created by other users, such as scheduled reports, the exported date format may differ from the format in reports created by you.

  • Day of week
    Calendar day of the week (e.g., Monday, Tuesday)

    • Web: User is viewing the content through a PC or laptop computer, or from their mobile or tablet browser.
