Use the Marketplace tab to view details of your inventory and performance in the ONE by AOL: Mobile Marketplace and manage your assignments and settings to maximize revenue.
The Marketplace Tab of the main dashboard contains a summation of your activity in the ONE by AOL: Mobile Marketplace; who is bidding on your inventory and at what price; the eCPM and average clearing prices; the number of bid requests, bids received and ads served. These metrics show your bid win rate both numerically and as a percentage of the total. This gives an overall picture of how well the placements in your apps are performing.
Note: If you mediate to additional Ad Sources (other than ONE by AOL: Mobile Marketplace) data from those sources is not shown on this tab. Find details on mediated spend using the Ad Networks tab.
