GeographicPerformanceReportColumn Value Set - Reporting

Defines the attributes and performance statistics columns that you can include in the GeographicPerformanceReportRequest.

The attribute columns that you include in a report can affect how the statistics are aggregated. In other words the number of rows increase by a factor of the unique attributes. For more information, see Columns that Group the Data.

For a list of columns that you must include, please see the Required Columns section below.

To see how far back hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and summary aggregated data can be retrieved for a report, see Report Data Retention Time Periods.

Values

Value Description
AccountId The Bing Ads assigned identifier of an account.
AccountName The account name.
AccountNumber The Bing Ads assigned number of an account.
AccountStatus The account status.
AdDistribution The network where you want your ads to show.
AdGroupId The Bing Ads assigned identifier of an ad group.
AdGroupName The ad group name.
AdGroupStatus The ad group status.
Assists The number of conversions from other ads within the same account that were preceded by one or more clicks from this ad. An ad is considered to have assisted the conversion if it was clicked before the most recently clicked ad that was credited with the conversion. Additionally, the click corresponding to the assist must occur within the conversion period of the goal.
AverageCpc The average cost per click (CPC). The total cost of all clicks on an ad divided by the number of clicks. This is the average amount you're actually charged each time your ad is clicked. For example, if you paid a total of 48.35 for 300 clicks, your average CPC is 0.16. The formula for calculating the average CPC is (Spend /Clicks).
AveragePosition The average position of the ad on a webpage.
BidMatchType The keyword bid match type. This can be different from the DeliveredMatchType column, for example if you bid on a broad match and the search term was an exact match. For more information, see Budget and Bid Strategies. The possible values are Broad, Exact, Phrase, and Unknown.
CampaignId The Bing Ads assigned identifier of a campaign.
CampaignName The campaign name.
CampaignStatus The campaign status.
City The city where the user was physically located when they clicked the ad.
The LocationType column identifies whether the user was located in, searching for, or viewing pages about the location.
Clicks Clicks are what you pay for. Clicks typically include a customer clicking an ad on a search results page or on a website on the search network. Clicks can also come from other sources (for example, spiders, robots, and test servers). For more information, see Bing Ads click measurement: description of methodology.
ConversionRate The conversion rate as a percentage. The number of conversions, divided by the total number of clicks. For example, if the ads in your campaign got 300 clicks and four conversions, the conversion rate is 1.33 (%). The formula for calculating the conversion rate is (Conversions / Clicks) x 100.
Conversions The number of conversions. A conversion is the completion of an action by a customer after viewing your ad. The action could be purchasing your product, registering for your webinar, joining an organization, or whatever you consider your goal and best measure of the ad's success.
CostPerAssist The cost per assist. The formula for calculating the cost per assist is (Spend / Assists).
CostPerConversion The cost per conversion. The formula for calculating the cost per conversion is (Spend / Conversions). Only ads in campaigns that enable conversion tracking contribute to the conversion number, so unless all campaigns in the account enable conversion tracking, the number will not be accurate.
Country The country where the user was physically located when they clicked the ad.

The LocationType column identifies whether the user was located in, searching for, or viewing pages about the location.
County The county where the user was physically located when they clicked the ad.

The LocationType column identifies whether the user was located in, searching for, or viewing pages about the location.
Ctr The click-through rate (CTR) is the number of times an ad was clicked, divided by the number of times the ad was shown (impressions). For example, if your ads got 50 clicks given 2,348 impressions, your CTR is 2.13 (%). The formula for calculating CTR is (Clicks / Impressions) x 100.
CurrencyCode The account currency type. For possible values, see Currencies.
DeliveredMatchType The match type used to deliver an ad. This can be different from the BidMatchType column, for example if you bid on a broad match and the search term was an exact match. For more information, see Budget and Bid Strategies. The possible values are Broad, Exact, Phrase, and Unknown.
DeviceOS The operating system of the device reported in the DeviceType column. The possible values include Android, Blackberry, iOS, Other, Unknown, and Windows. If the operating system of the device cannot be determined or is not one of the operating systems that you can target, the value in this column will be Unknown.
DeviceType The device name attribute of a device OS target bid. The type of device which showed ads. The possible values include Computer, Smartphone, Tablet, and Unknown.
Impressions The number of times an ad has been displayed on search results pages. Without impressions there are no clicks or conversions.
Language The language of the country the ad is served in.

For possible values, see the Language column of Ad Languages. The language display name will be provided in the report e.g. English.
LocationId The Bing Ads identifier of the location where the user was physically located when they clicked the ad. For geographical location identifiers, see Geographical Location Codes.

The LocationType column identifies whether the user was located in, searching for, or viewing pages about the location.
LocationType The location type used to deliver ads. For example to distinguish between people in versus searching for or viewing pages about the corresponding location of interest. The possible location type values include "Physical location" and "Location of interest".

Location of interest indicates that the physical location of the user was not used to serve the ad, and the user was searching for or viewing pages about the corresponding City, Country, MetroArea, or State locations. If the user is searching for the location that they are in, then the location type is "Physical location". For example if the search user is in Seattle and searching for Seattle, the location type is "Physical location".
MetroArea The metro area (Nielsen DMA® in the United States) where the user was physically located when they clicked the ad.

The LocationType column identifies whether the user was located in, searching for, or viewing pages about the location.
