Calculation of CTR based on requests instead of impressions


Recommended Posts

On my previous installation (Revive Aserver v3) I made little hack in the revive code to make CTR calculating base on request (instead impressions, because counting impression produced additional connections). 

If I start using async tag in Revive Adserver v4, need I have to make these hack again, or, may be, another correct way exist?

While Ian's note is correct, do be aware that this basically breaks the functionality to count statistics and thus leaves you with a useless installation.

CTR is defined and calculated as clicks divided by impressions, expressed as a percentage. Revive Adserver will not calculate it as clicks divided by requests, so if that's what you want, you will have to modify the code (and break the warranty :) ).

By the way, async tags were present in Revive Adserver v3.2 as well.
