Adacado’s Performance Reports, also known as Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Reports, can help you better understand your ads. Each report includes information about the ads for one advertiser.
To access KPI Reports for selected advertisers or all advertisers in your billing account, simply click on the account menu located in the upper right corner and choose the “Reports” option. This will take you to the “Advertiser KPI Reports” page, where you can access various reporting options from the left navigation bar. All reports are available for download as CSV files, and you can access data for the past 90 days.
On the “Advertiser KPI Reports” page, you can download different KPI reports for specific advertisers for the selected time period. Simply choose a report type and date range, and then click on the advertiser name in the list to download the report you have selected.
The “Sold Inventory” report is only available if you have one or more Auto advertisers in your billing account.
By navigating to the “KPI Reports” page, you can download a range of KPI reports for all the advertisers associated with your billing account, based on a specified date range.
Accessing the “Other Reports” page lets you download billing data for all advertisers in your billing account for a selected date range.

Adacado offers different types of KPI reports to help you analyze your advertiser performance from different perspectives. Learn more about individual KPI reports.
This report provides information on the overall performance of individual themes used for each campaign of the selected advertiser. See the list of attributes for the theme performance report:
If your campaign(s) only uses one theme, you will see a single row for that campaign/theme per date. In the case that you are using multiple themes in a single campaign, like for A/B testing, there will be a row for each theme in a campaign so you can see how different creatives compare to each other. This is the first report to explore whether you have one theme or many or are running static or dynamic ads.
This report gives you information about the performance of the individual products shown in your ads, so if you are running dynamic ads using a data feed, then the product performance report is one you may want to explore. If you are running static ads (no product data/feed) then this report won’t be useful. See the list of attributes for the product performance report:
NOTE: This report contains information about product views, not ad impressions. See the list of reporting definitions below for more information.
The format performance report gives you information about how individual ad sizes are performing in your campaigns. It is similar to the theme performance report, but the information is further broken down by ad size. See the list of attributes for the format performance report:
The impression performance report provides information about the overall performance of your campaign(s) for the selected advertiser. This report does not contain cost-related metrics. See the list of attributes for the impressions report:
The campaign performance overview report provides information about the overall performance of your campaign(s) for the selected advertiser including cost-related metrics. See the list of attributes for the campaign performance overview report:
The campaign device performance report provides the percentage of your ad impressions served to the different device types (desktop, mobile, tablet). See the list of attributes for the campaign device performance report:
The campaign browser performance report provides the percentage of your ad impressions served to the different browser types (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.). See the list of attributes for the campaign browser performance report:
The campaign geo performance report provides the number of your ad impressions and clicks for different countries. See the list of attributes for the campaign geo performance report:
The Facebook performance report provides analytical data pulled directly from Facebook’s reporting API for your Facebook ads. See the list of attributes for the Facebook performance report:
The sold inventory report is exclusively available for Auto advertisers at this time. The Adacado system conducts a daily check of product data generated from current data feeds, comparing previously existing product data to present data and generating a list of products presumed sold at the time of the data check.
First, it verifies the data in the feed mapped to the “Manufacturer VIN” data field. If this field is not mapped to the feed, the system examines the data mapped to the “Product ID” field. If the data mapped to the “Product ID” is not a VIN, the system excludes that product from the verification process. See the list of attributes for the sold inventory report:
The number of times an ad was served.
The number of times templates within ad(s) were displayed.
The number of times templates were displayed when an ad was served. It is calculated by dividing “Scene Views” by “Ad Impressions”.
Product views refers to the number of products that were viewed, which will usually be a smaller number than product impressions served. For example, an ad may be configured to display 5 products, transitioning between products every 5 seconds. If the ad loads onto a website page, but the viewer leaves the page after 9 seconds, it means only 2 of the 5 products in the ad would have been viewed. In this example, there would have been 1 ad impression, 5 product impressions and 2 product views.
The number of times individual products were in view when an ad was clicked on.
The number of clicks on your ads.
The CTR describes the percentage of ad impressions that had clicks. CTR is calculated by dividing the number of clicks by the number of ad impressions. For example, if an ad has 1,000 impressions served and has 5 clicks, the CTR % would be 5 clicks ÷ 1000 impressions x 100 = 0.5%
This represents the total cost of the different Adacado services used over the reporting period. Adacado’s costs are based on three service components:
NOTE: Media costs are only included in the analytics dashboard for campaigns that use Adacado’s media buying service. If an advertiser is using an external media buying service, those external costs will not be included in the Adacado campaign analytics dashboard.
Cost per 1,000 impressions. It is calculated by dividing “Cost” by “Ad Impressions”.
Cost spent on each click calculated by dividing “Cost” by “Clicks”. For example, if your cost is $22.4 and you have 57 clicks in the selected period, your CPC for that period is $22.4 ÷ 57 clicks = $0.39.
Engagement is counted when a viewer interacts with an ad. This includes clicks as well as interactions with ad navigation – if present.
This percentage is calculated by dividing “Engagement” by “Ad Impressions”. It describes the rate at which viewers interacted with the ad.
An ad impression is counted each time an ad is displayed on a website. Scene views are counted by the number of times templates are displayed within your ad(s). If your ads only contain one template, then the number of ad impressions and scene views will be the same.
Let’s say that a campaign has a dynamic ad, which contains 5 templates in its storyboard, each one showing a different product. When this ad is shown to a viewer, each product is displayed for 4 seconds before the next, with 2 seconds of transition time between each product.
A viewer of a website displaying this ad arrives on the page and leaves the page after 9 seconds. This means that the ad was only able to display two templates and two products.
In this scenario the following numbers would be added to the performance reports:
A campaign has a dynamic ad which contains 3 templates and each of those templates shows 2 products. When this ad is shown on a website, each product is displayed for 4 seconds before the next appears, with 2 seconds of transition time between each product.
A viewer of a website displaying this ad arrives on the page and leaves the page after 26 seconds. The ad would show each template, then show the first two templates a second time.
In this scenario the following numbers would be added to the performance reports:
