Metrics in the Cards report

Total cards data

  • Card teasers shown: The number of times card teasers have been shown. Teasers can have multiple impressions per view.
  • Card teaser clicks: The number of clicks on a card teaser. Card icon clicks are attributed to the last teaser shown.
  • Clicks per card teaser shown: The click-through-rate of card teasers, which is the ratio of teaser clicks to teaser impressions.
  • Cards shown: The number of times a card has been shown. A card impression is logged for each card on a video when the card panel is opened, and we only log impressions for the first time the panel is opened. Therefore, a single card can have at most one impression per view.
  • Card clicks: The number of clicks on a specific card.
  • Clicks per card shown: The click-through-rate of cards, which is the ratio of cards clicks to card impressions.
