New Metric: Net Media Daily Target

Easily see what your search campaigns should be spending on a per-day basis with the new net media daily target metric! The goal of this metric is to give you a target daily spend number for search campaigns based on the budget and days remaining.

What are the key benefits?

Many specialists who run search campaigns rely on external trackers or spreadsheets to calculate this number, which is a time-intensive process prone to manual error. With this new pacing metric, analysts and digital media specialists can easily see if there is a need to shift budget between Google Ads Campaigns or Line Items to improve the campaign performance.

How is the metric calculated?

Net Media Daily Target = (Net Media Contracted - Net Media Spend up to yesterday) ÷ Days Remaining including today.

Where can I see it?

  • Navigate to a specific campaign view.

  • Click on the Analytics tab

  • Click on Search in the Channels pane.

  • See metrics in the Line Item pane.

  • Click on one Line Item.

  • See metrics in the Delivery Sources pane.
