Definition: Click-Through-Rate

Why do I never see my own banners?

The display frequency depends mainly on the campaign duration, the amount of ad impressions and the placement/targeting options. If you do not see my banner it does not mean that it is not visible. You are either looking at the non targeted pages or the frequency rate is very low. For example, if your order includes 50,000 ad impressions for one month on certain pages of the Windfinder site and the overall impressions of those pages are 5,000,0000 in total then the frequency of your campaign is very low. But we guarantee that 50,000 ad impressions will be delivered.

You can increase the banner frequency by ...:

  • increasing the number of ad impressions
  • reducing the time period of your campaign (e.g. 50,000 ad impressions in 2 weeks instead of 4)
  • placing the banner only on certain pages of the Windfinder domain (for better targeting)
  • using additional options like Geo Targeting or Frequency Capping

You'll find more information about fine tuning in the media kit in the chapter "Campaign planning".

You can check in your Doubleclick for Publishers account in real time how many times your banner has been displayed so far.
