AdPlugg has always tracked impressions and clicks for every ad that it serves. This along with a smattering of other data including the who, what, where, and when of the impression or click event is recorded. We’ve also long had a charting feature where you can graphically view the performance of your ads over time. Now we’ve added a new PDF ad reporting feature that allows you to create a PDF ad report for each of your ads. The report shows a listing of each day that the ad ran along with the number of impressions and clicks that the ad received that day. The image above shows a sample and should give you an idea of what the ad reports look like.
The new ad reports are generated as PDF files which makes them ideal for emailing to your advertisers. This is a good practice that helps you to retain your advertisers and keep them advertising with you. While they can see how much traffic is coming from your site via tools such as Google Analytics, they can’t see how many impressions their ads are getting unless you provide them with reports.
Right now sending the reports to the advertisers is a manual process but we plan to have them send automatically (at the publisher’s option) in an upcoming release.
