More about this metric

Online advertisements can be a text ad, a banner, or even a button. The primary goal of running digital advertisements is usually to increase the amount of traffic directed towards a web page.

Clicks are one of the most important measures of your ad performance. A click means that your ad was interesting enough to get a viewer to take action. Each click represents an opportunity to convert that user into a purchase, lead, or sign up. Clicks also correlate to the amount of traffic that your web pages are receiving from your ads.

The result of clicking takes the user to a website; often a specifically created landing page for that advertisement. It's important to measure Click Through Rate (CTR) as well, as this will give a qualitative measure of how good your advertisement is at converting the views, or Impressions, of your ad.
