Ad Metrics

AD IMPRESSION

A file or combination of files sent to a valid Ad Browser as an individual advertisement as a result of that Ad Browser's request being received by the server. A valid Ad impression may only be counted when an ad counter receives and responds to an HTTP request for a tracking asset from a client. The count must happen after the initiation of retrival of the underlying page content. Examples of a tracking asset typically include a pixel tag, a 302 redirect, or the ad content itself.

SERVER SIDE INSERTION

The WAP AD IMPRESSION occurs if the Ad server successfully serves or redirects to an Ad file when the BROWSER'S gateway requests a WML file.
