Event Tracking

In addition to core event tracking, this ad format also tracks these events:

  • True View: How many times the full post was 100% visible to the user while they were on the page
  • Unique View: Same as the 'view' metric, but only tracked once per user/post combination
  • Touch: How many times the user engaged with the ad directly (click, hover, mobile touch)

Embed An Example In Your Media Kit

Customers who wish to embed the example on some "Media Kit" page on their website can do so in one of two ways:

  • Option 1: If you have Wordpress and the Broadstreet plugin, you can use this shortcode anywhere in any post to render the example.

    [broadstreet ad=""]
  • Option 2: If you do not have Wordpress, or choose not install the Broadstreet plugin, you can embed this javascript code snippet into your post:

    <div street-address=""></div><script>
    (function(d, s) {
      var destination = '%%CLICK_URL_ESC%%';
      var js, bjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      js = d.createElement(s); js.async = true;
      js.src = "//"
        + (window.broadstreet ? 'init=0' : '')
        + (destination.indexOf('CLICK_URL_ESC') >= 0
          ? '' : '&destination=' + destination);
      bjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, bjs);
    }(document, 'script'));</script>
