You have access to Ad Optimiser Report via https://ad-optimiser.metoda.com/report. You can login with your metoda account (email and password). 


IMPORTANT NOTE: 

  • As Amazon does not grant access to live performance data, the costs/revenues shown for the current day and the day before are not yet final and should not be included in performance analysis. 
  • Only campaigns/search terms which have generated at least one click are included in our reporting. This leads to slight differences in impressions compared to Amazon, as campaigns and search terms without clicks are not included in our reporting.


The Ad Optimiser report is divided into several sections

  • Filters
  • Budget
  • KPIs 
  • Development of KPIs
  • Insights

These sections will be explained in further detail below. 

1. FILTERS

2. BUDGET

The budget section allows an overview on the development of budgets and spendings over time. 

1. The table shows all budget periods within the time period which was selected in the filter area. Time elapsed (in %) and budget spent (in %) should ideally be on the same level. 

2. Shows the planned budget and the actually spent budget for the selected budget period over time. The algorithm recalculates planned budgets continuously, taking actual spends into account. 

3. Shows whether the budget can be spent given the current TACoS settings. It ranges from 0 to 1.

  • If the budget factor is below 1, this means that more budget could be spent given the current TACoS settings.
  • If the budget factor is 1, this means that it is not possible to spend more budget given the current TACoS settings. 


3. KPIs

The filters selected in the first section are applied to the KPIs displayed in this section. Please note that the filter on the budget period (in the budget table) is not applied to these KPIs. 



CostsTotal amount of money that has been spent on your campaigns.
RevenuesRevenue attribution differs between vendors and sellers and for different campaign types: 

Vendors, SPAs: Revenue is attributed to a campaign whenever a shopper, who clicked on an ad, purchases any of your brand's products from the same category from Amazon during the 14 days after clicking the ad.
Vendors, SBAs & PDAs: Revenue is attributed to a campaign whenever a shopper, who clicked on an ad, purchases any of your brand's products from the same category from Amazon or a third-party seller during the 14 days after clicking the ad.

Sellers, SPAs: Revenue is attributed to a campaign whenever a shopper, who clicked on an ad, purchases any of the seller's products during the 7 days after clicking the ad.
Vendors, SBAs & PDAs: Revenue is attributed to a campaign whenever a shopper, who clicked on an ad, purchases any of your brand's products from Amazon or a third-party seller during the 14 days after clicking the ad.

ACoSAdvertising cost of sales is the ratio between costs spent on ads and revenues attributed to those.
ImpressionsWhenever an ad is displayed to a shopper, an impression occurs. The impressions KPI counts how many times your ad has been displayed.
ClicksWhenever a shopper clicks on an ad, a click occurs. The clicks KPI counts how many times shoppers have clicked on an ad. You only pay for clicks, not for impressions.
ConversionsWhenever a shopper buys any of your products on Amazon during the 14 days after clicking your ad, a conversion occurs. The conversions KPI counts the number of products that the shoppers bought during the 14 days after clicking your ad. Beware that this might not be the product you have actually advertised, but any other of your products in the same Amazon category.
CTRThe click through rate (CTR) is the ratio of how often shoppers click on your ad when it is shown.
CRThe conversion rate is the ratio of how often shoppers buy any of your products after clicking your ad (number of conversions divided by number of clicks).
CPC Average Cost-per-Click or CPC is the average amount which you have spent per click. It is calculated by dividing total spend by the total number of clicks.


4. DEVELOPMENT OF KPIs

The same KPIs as in the KPI section are displayed here in their development over time.

5. INSIGHTS

The insights section is devided into two tabs, the Dashboard and the Insights tab. You can switch between these two by clicking on the relevant tab, which you find below the insights section.


The Dashboard tab includes a table that gives you an overview on most important KPIs. With the help of the drill-up function (left corner above the Campaign Name) you have the possibility to view the data also on product and category level.

The Insights Tab includes a section that is devided into two tables. The table in the lefthand side gives you an overview on most relevant KPIs, while the table on the righthand side shows you data on the keyword level and further KPIs. Moreover, by using the drill-up function you also find the data on search term level. Within the left table you can also use the drill-up function to see the data on product and category level. 


Above the tables, several buttons allow you to further analyze data.
