Top Domains

The top domains are ordered by domains that had the most number of plays in the selected time frame. For each domain the following metrics are available:

  • Plays - Plays are the percentage of page visitors who actually clicked play and began watching your video. This metric is a good measure of how relevant your video content is to the location where it's placed, and how successful it is at enticing visitors to watch. If you want a certain percentage of your target audience to click play on your video (whether it's a video on your homepage explaining your service or a training video for your employees), play rate is the number to keep an eye on.
  • Player impressions - Every time media is presented and is ready to be played (but not played yet), it is counted as a Player Impression. Every time the page is refreshed and the media is re-displayed, it is counted as an additional impression. Pressing the Play button after pressing Pause will not be counted as an additional impression.
  • Player impression ratio - number of plays divided by number of impressions
  • Minutes Viewed - Considered as "Minutes Played" by Unique Viewers.
  • Average completion rate - measured by viewer reaching playback quartiles

You can also drill down to a specific domain to see all the URLs under that domain and the same metrics in a more granular view. You can view the data for each metric in daily or monthly granularity. Hover over any point in the graph to see the detailed data. Click on the title of the metric in the table to sort the table based on this metric.
