Google is getting more transparent with advertisers about whether consumers are actually watching their online video ads.
Google will start telling advertisers and publishers to what extent their digital video ads are being seen, the company announced on Tuesday. Specifically the search giant, which also owns YouTube, will say what percentage of an advertiser’s or publisher’s video ads were at least 50% in view and for at least two seconds in keeping with the Media Ratings Council’s standard.
This viewability reporting will be available to any campaigns served through Google’s DoubleClick ad-technology system, including its ad exchange, but advertisers and publishers will need to use Google’s DoubleClick reporting tools to view the stats.
