Impression CTR

Impression clickthrough rate (CTR) is the number of ad clicks divided by the number of individual ad impressions. It's calculated by dividing clicks by impressions:

(Clicks / Impressions) * 100%

For example, if your ad received 20 clicks out of 1,000 impressions, the Impressions CTR would be 2%.

Matched requests

The number of ads returned by an ad source in response to ad requests. Not all matched requests result in an impression.

For bidding ad sources, matched requests is the number of times an ad source wins the bidding auction and the waterfall (if applicable), and returns an ad to the app. 

For waterfall ad sources, matched requests is the number of times an ad source is called in the mediation waterfall and returns an ad to the app.

Serving restriction
Use this dimension to compare personalized ads to non-personalized ads, and understand which restrictions lead to ads not being personalized:

  • Limited ads: Traffic where limited ads were served, regardless of user location.
  • Restricted data processing (RDP): Publisher chose to enable restricted data processing (for example, using AdMob’s blocking controls) for compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
  • Non-personalized ads (NPA): Publisher chose to enable non-personalized ads (for example, using AdMob’s blocking controls) for compliance with Google’s EU User Consent Policy and GDPR. Also applies to ad requests subject to the LGPD.
  • Basic adsIAB TCF v2.0 basic ads were served.
  • Personalization disabled: May occur when iOS users have opted in to Limited Ad Tracking or haven’t provided consent under the AppTrackingTransparency (ATT), and there's no other available user identifiers. May occur when Android users opt out of ad personalization. Includes any other cases where personalization wasn’t feasible.
  • No restriction: Ads that are personalized using IDFA, Android Ad ID, or other available user identifiers.

Some ad requests may fall into multiple categories in this list. In these cases, the ad request is sorted into the first applicable category according to the order shown here.
