Using the home dashboard

Overview of AdMob dashboards

Dashboards in AdMob provide you with a day-to-day overview of the activity in your account. They include all of the most important information about your apps and campaigns, in one place, organized into cards of data. The dashboards can show you trends in app revenue and usage and give you insights into your overall success using AdMob. Reviewing your dashboards each day can help you identify which strategies are working for your apps and users and which areas may need attention. They’re a good way to measure the overall health of your account.

There are two types of dashboards in AdMob: the home dashboard and the app overview dashboard.

Dashboards aren’t meant to be a replacement for reports. Instead, they’re an extra way to view information about your account. For more in-depth data, click the links on the individual cards in your dashboards to view the related reports. 

Your AdMob home dashboard

The home dashboard can be used to learn more about the overall trends and revenue for your AdMob account. To view your home dashboard, click Home in the sidebar.
 

Estimated AdMob Network earnings
 

The Estimated AdMob Network earnings card provides an at-a-glance view of your overall earnings for ads served from the AdMob Network. This card provides earnings calculations for a range of time periods compared side by side:

  • Today so far
  • Yesterday
  • This month so far
  • Last month
Balance
 

How to use this card

The Balance card displays the current amount of revenue in your AdMob account, information about the last payment your received, and whether there are any problems with your payment settings.

To make adjustments to your payment settings, click Payments in the sidebar.

Depending on the steps you've already taken, your Balance card may display different messages. You can review the following explanations of each for more information:

  • Enter your payment address: To start serving ads through AdMob, you'll need to enter your payment address. This is the address you want us to use when we send you the money you've earned with AdMob.
  • Select your payment method: Before we can pay you, we need to know your preferred payment method, or how you want to receive the money you've earned with AdMob. Learn more about payment methods
  • Enter your tax information: Users in some countries or regions may be required to enter tax information before they can receive payments. Learn more about entering tax information
  • Meet the payment threshold: Your account needs to reach the payment threshold, a certain amount of revenue, before we can send your payment. The payment threshold is different for each country or region. Learn more about payment thresholds
  • Verify your address by postal mail: Once you've reached the payment threshold, we'll automatically send a PIN number for address verification through your postal service. It may take 2-4 weeks to arrive, depending on the postal service in your country or region. Once you receive the postcard containing your PIN, you'll need to enter it in AdMob. Learn more about PIN verification by mail

Each of these steps is in place to ensure you receive the money you've made in AdMob.

After your account information has been entered, the payment threshold has been met, and your address has been verified, the Balance card will continue to show your up-to-date revenue balance, the total of the last payment you received, and any alerts about your payments. 

AdMob Network performance

How to use this card

The AdMob Network performance card gives you an overview of the estimated earnings and traffic your ad units have generated through the AdMob Network. The line graph beside each metric give you a visual snapshot of how the value has changed over time. 

Metrics found in this card

  • Estimated earnings: Your earnings accrued so far, based on Pacific Time (PT), from ads generated by the AdMob Network. This amount is an estimate that is subject to change when your earnings are verified for accuracy at the end of every month.
  • Requests: The total number of ad requests the AdMob Network received from your apps.
  • Impressions: The total number of ads from the AdMob Network viewed by users of your apps.
  • Match rate: The percentage of requests that were successfully matched to the AdMob Network in the mediation stack. It's calculated by dividing matched requests by successful ad network requests:


    Formula: Matched requests / Successful ad network requests

  • eCPM: The estimated earnings accrued for every 1000 impressions an ad generated by the AdMob Network received. eCPM doesn't represent how much an ad actually earned; rather, it's calculated by dividing estimated earnings by the number of impressions received, then multiplying by 1000.


    Formula: eCPM = ( Estimated earnings / # of impressions ) * 1000
     

    Example calculation

    If an ad earned an estimated $180 from 45,000 ad impressions, its eCPM would equal ($180 / 45,000) * 1000, or $4.00.

Top performing ad networks

How to use this card

The Top performing ad networks card measures the effectiveness of your mediation setup. It can show you which ad network and ad format combinations are performing well and the average eCPM of the ads being served.

Metrics found in this card

  • Queries: The total number of unique requests to serve an ad that passed through your mediation stack. This number doesn't count single requests multiple times. Instead, each request is only counted once, no matter how many networks received that request as it moved through the mediation chain.

    Example

    A single request made to Network A, Network B, and Network C in the mediation chain will only be counted 1 time.

  • Impressions (top): The total number of ads shown to users across all of your ad units and apps through mediation. Includes a period-over-period comparison.
  • Fill rate: The number of times a mediation-generated ad was shown to users (impressions) compared to the number of times an ad was requested from a specific ad source (requests) in your mediation chain. It's shown as a percentage of the number of total ad requests. Includes a period-over-period comparison.
  • Network & format: The ad networks and ad formats that generated the queries and impressions in the card. 
  • Impressions (column): The total number of mediation-generated ads shown to users for each ad network/ad format combination in the card. Includes a period-over-period comparison.
  • eCPM: The average eCPM of the mediation-generated impressions for each ad network/ad format combination in the card. Includes a period-over-period comparison.
