Viewing Spotlight Statistics

Spotlight provides you with statistical data that contains valuable insights for improving your content, engaging your audience, and making informed decisions. You can track performance, optimize content, and measure ROI, enabling you to achieve your goals more effectively.

The statistical data available on Spotlight are as follows:

  • Views: how many visitors have viewed your Spotlight

    • 1 view = at least 2 seconds

  • Clicks: how many visitors have clicked on the buttons at your Spotlight

    • 1 click = 1 click on any button

  • Click Through Rate (CTR) = the percentage of profile views that resulted in the user clicking on a link

    • CTR = number of clicks divided by number of views the merchant's Spotlight has received

    • For example: number of views = 100, number of clicks = 52, so CTR = 52/100 = 52%

    • This means that for every 100 people who see your content, 52 of them click on one of your links. In other words, over half of the people who look at your content end up clicking a link. This shows that your content is very effective at getting people to take action.

You can view your Spotlight's number of views and clicks, as well as Click Through Rate (CTR)
