View-through refers to the ability to credit an ad campaign for an install even if no one has clicked on an ad. The idea behind view-through is that it makes a causal contribution to driving an install even if the viewer does not click the ad.
Apsalar is pleased to offer view-through tracking for Facebook. By tracking Facebook view-through as part of your app attribution and measurement, you will be able to make smarter decisions about campaigns, creative executions and more. With Facebook view-through, the last ad impression is credited with an install if there are no ad clicks to which you can attribute that install. View-through is an increasingly becoming an invaluable measurement metric for evaluating and optimizing campaigns. View-through attribution & reporting will not affect your media costs for Facebook CPM or CPC campaigns. Rather, view-through measurement gives you another valuable tool to improve your decision-making and optimization.
Apsalar view-through tracking utilizes the Facebook 1 day view window. To begin tracking view through, you simply enable view-through tracking in the console.
View-through performance reporting is available in the Apsalar Traffic and Cohort reports.
