  • Unique visitors (cookies)
  • Unique visitors (estimated cookies)
  • Unique visitors (users)

  • Pageviews
  • Total visits
  • Average visits per visitor
  • Average time on site
To provide site traffic estimates, Ad Planner uses a hybrid methodology that combines sample user data from various Google products and services and direct-measured site-centric data.

Direct-measured, site-centric data

When Google Analytics data is provided, Ad Planner displays direct measured data for:
  • Unique visitors (cookies)
  • Pageviews
  • Total visits
  • Average visits per visitor
  • Average time on site
5. Demographics: Ad Planner demographics are generated through demographic inference algorithms that combine third-party demographic data with Google sample data. The third-party demographic data is licensed from an industry-accepted consumer research panel operated according to industry best practices by a full-service research firm. The firm employs a variety of panel recruiting techniques to ensure the quality of their panel.
6. Audience interests: Aggregated audience interests in Ad Planner are generated by applying Google's interest classification system to Ad Planner's aggregated sample data. Ad Planner classifies aggregated opt-in user data into interest categories based on sites that users are visiting. These audience interests are presented in aggregated form in Ad Planner to help better understand the interests of the totality of visitors to a given site and are not used to categorize individual users or for individual user targeting on a particular site or across the web.


7. Ad specifications and ad presence: By analyzing Google web crawl data, Ad Planner estimates the presence of advertising on sites and the specific ad sizes and formats of those ads. Also, using the Ad Planner Publisher Center, publishers can review and update these ad specifications. Ad Specifications that have been reviewed and updated are denoted by 'Data Source: Publisher'.

8. Ad placements: Ad Planner obtains ad placement information from Google AdSense and Google Ad Manager. Ad impression data is available when viewing ad placements. This data comes directly from the publisher ad servers and is denoted by 'Data source: Publisher ad server'.
  • Google AdSense: All AdSense placement targeting-enabled placements that have sufficient traffic for Ad Planner to measure are displayed in Ad Planner.
  • Google Ad Manager: Publishers using Google Ad Manager can opt in their ad placements to display in Ad Planner.
