What's in the columns?

  • Rating displays an Up arrow indicates a good ad rating (up arrow), or a Down arrow indicates poor ad rating (down arrow) to indicate how the ad performed relative to other ads in the test.
    If there's no difference in the ad's performance, the column displays Rating undecided or indeterminate  (undecided icon).
    When you stop the test, you can select the ads that you want to stop displaying or you can let DS stop the poor performing ads.
  • Observed value displays the actual percentage or amount that the ad achieved for the goal set for the ad copy test. The number in this column will match the number shown in the goal column. For example, if CTR is the goal for the ad copy test, the Observed value and the CTR column display the same rate.
  • Confidence interval displays a range for the true value of your goal. The confidence interval is derived from the data collected during the test.
