Advertiser Geographic Report

Contents

Overview

The Advertiser Geographic report provides a rough estimate on the location of the audience reached.

Note: Since StreamAds does not do any detailed log parsing of streaming servers, the only way it can generate a view of a advertiser's audience geographic location is by Gateway advertisements and Banner/Text advertisements. That is why the in-stream column for most advertisers will remain empty.

Also note that there is a margin of error in geographic estimation of listener location. StreamAds is very accurate in detecting the country of a listener, but the error margin increases as one gets to state/region level and the margin is even bigger on city level. That being said, the geographic report can be vital in your presentation to potential advertisers.

    It is sometimes useful to limit the report to only certain countries. To do this, enter the country codes into the Countries edit field, or click on the Search icon next to the Countries field title to look up country codes.
