Reach reports

Use Reach reports to gather insight about the number of viewers or composition of audience reached by your campaigns.

What can I measure?

Unique Reach

  • Unique Reach: Impression Reach
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who saw an ad during the reporting period. The impression estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Viewable Impression Reach
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who viewed an ad (according to viewability standards) during the reporting period. The viewable impression estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Average Impression Frequency
    The average frequency at which an ad is seen by unique users (across devices) during the reporting period. A frequency of 1 means that, on average, users saw your ad once. A higher average means that more users saw your ads multiple times. The user estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Average Viewable Impression Frequency
    The average frequency at which an ad is viewed by unique users (across devices, and according to viewability standards) during the reporting period. A frequency of 1 means that, on average, users viewed your ad once. A higher average means that more users viewed your ads multiple times. The user estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Added Impression Reach from Frequency Cap

    The number of additional users reached by the campaign due to frequency capping.

    As of April 1, 2023, Display & Video 360 changed the way it calculates added reach. To prevent inaccurate data, reports with the Unique Reach: Added Impression Reach From Frequency Cap metric cannot be created with a time range that overlaps April 1, 2023.
  • Unique Reach: Click Reach
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who clicked an ad during the reporting period. The click estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Total Reach
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who saw or clicked an ad during the reporting period. The total estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.

  • Unique Reach: Incremental Impression Reach

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month — the estimated number of additional new users who were served an ad, and who weren't served an ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the impression reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by day incremental impression reach will show how many unique users were served an ad during Day 1, how many additional users were served an ad during Day 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular day.

  • Unique Reach: Incremental Viewable Impression Reach

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month — the estimated number of additional new users who were served a viewable ad, and who weren't served a viewable ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the viewable impression reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by day, incremental viewable impression reach will show how many unique users were served a viewable ad during Day 1, how many additional users were served a viewable ad during Day 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular day.

  • Unique Reach: Incremental Click Reach

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month — the estimated number of additional new users who clicked on an ad, and who didn't click on an ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the click reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by day, incremental click reach will show how many unique users clicked on Day 1, how many additional users clicked on Day 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular day. The total for all increments is the click reach for the full reporting period.

  • Unique Reach: Incremental Total Reach

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month  — the estimated number of additional new users who saw or clicked on an ad during each time period within a report, and who didn't click or see an ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the total reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by week, incremental total reach will show how many unique users saw or clicked during Week 1, how many additional users saw or clicked during Week 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular week.

    For the first time increment in a report, the incremental reach will equal the total reach. This is expected, because there are no prior time increments with data to use as a basis for comparison.
  • Unique Reach: Average Impression Frequency (Co-viewed)
    The average frequency at which an ad is seen by unique users (across devices) during the reporting period. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices. A frequency of 1 means that, on average, users saw your ad once. A higher average means that more users saw your ads multiple times. The user estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.
  • Unique Reach: Average Viewable Impression Frequency (Co-viewed)
    The average frequency at which an ad is viewed by unique users (across devices, and according to viewability standards) during the reporting period. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices. A frequency of 1 means that, on average, users viewed your ad once. A higher average means that more users viewed your ads multiple times. The user estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.
  • Unique Reach: Impression Reach (Co-viewed)
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who saw an ad during the reporting period. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices. The impression estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.
  • Unique Reach: Viewable Impression Reach (Co-viewed)
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who viewed an ad (according to viewability standards) during the reporting period. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices. The viewable impression estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.
  • Unique Reach: Total Reach (Co-viewed)
    The estimated number of unique users (across devices) who saw or clicked an ad during the reporting period. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices. The total estimate is based on unique cookies, mobile device IDs, and aggregated sign-in data.
  • Unique Reach: Impressions (Co-viewed)
    The number of exposures to your ad, either to an individual or among multiple people watching together on connected TV devices (also known as co-viewers). This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices.
  • Unique Reach: Incremental Viewable Impression Reach (Co-viewed)

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month — the estimated number of additional new users who were served a viewable ad, and who weren't served a viewable ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the viewable impression reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by hour, incremental viewable impression reach will show how many unique users were served a viewable ad during Hour 1, how many additional users were served a viewable ad during Hour 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular hour. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices.

  • Unique Reach: Incremental Total Reach (Co-viewed)

    For each time increment within a report — day, week or month — the estimated number of additional new users who saw or clicked on an ad during each time period within a report, and who didn't click or see an ad during any previous increment. The total for all increments is the total reach for the full reporting period.

    For example, if your report is broken down by week, incremental total reach will show how many unique users saw or clicked during Week 1, how many additional users saw or clicked during Week 2, and so on. Users are only counted once and attributed to a particular week.

    For the first time increment in a report, the incremental reach will equal the total reach. This is expected, because there are no prior time increments with data to use as a basis for comparison. This metric accounts for co-viewing, when multiple people watch ads together on connected TV devices.
  • Programmatic Guaranteed Added Unique Reach: Impressions due to Frequency

    The estimated number of additional users reached by a Programmatic Guaranteed deal due to campaign frequency capping.

    Data for this metric may be delayed for up to 2 days, which causes some date ranges to show limited data (for example, last 7 days).

  • Programmatic Guaranteed Bid Requests passed due to Frequency
    The total number of bid requests passed for the Programmatic Guaranteed deal due to campaign frequency capping.
  • Programmatic Guaranteed Savings Re-invested Due To Frequency
    The media cost savings (in the advertiser’s currency) for the Programmatic Guaranteed deal due to campaign frequency capping. This is calculated by multiplying the impressions saved by the rate.

  • Population

    The total number of users in a given population that belong to a given demographic. 

  • % Population Reach

    The percentage of Population (see population metric) that was reached.

  • % Viewable Population Reach
    The percentage of Population (see population metric) that was reached with a viewable ad.

Dimensions

Some dimensions like Country are required (they are added by default and can't be removed), and others are unavailable for Reach reports. Because Unique Reach Audience focuses on demographics, Gender and Age dimensions are also required. You can see the availability of dimensions within offline reporting. 

For descriptions of dimensions, see Dimensions available in reports.

Limitations

  • A dash ( - ) in the Unique Reach report means that the model couldn’t make an accurate calculation. This happens when there wasn’t enough data that met our privacy and quality requirements. Try using more data or segmenting your report less to provide the model with more impressions.
  • Unique Reach is not available in all countries. Impressions from those countries may cause a dash ( - ) in the Unique Reach report.
  • Reach data can't be summed or compared across reports. For example, the reach of line items and insertion orders can't be summed to determine the reach of a campaign.
  • Cumulative reach data is available for 93 days as of November 1, 2018. Reach information can be pulled (at maximum) in 93-day blocks, and these blocks can't be added together accurately.  Cumulative reach data prior to this date can be as little as 42 days.
  • Due to the modeling involved in our calculations, it typically takes up to 3 days for reach metrics to be available in your account. Keep this delay in mind if your date range includes the last few days.

  • Reports with the Programmatic Guaranteed Reach metrics cannot be created with a time range that overlaps September 1, 2023.
