Conversion path report

"Conversion path report" is a report that shows the behavior of Internet users on ads leading to the conversion for conversions that occur under the account.

In this report, the user's behavior on ads and the campaign in which the ads where the behavior occurred are added are called "touchpoint". The "conversion path" is a time-series display of the points of contact leading up to conversion.
You can also check the number of ad display (viewable impression) in addition to clicks and video views. You can measure the contribution to conversions and brand awareness.

For each path, the touchpoints are displayed in chronological order from left to right, and the touchpoints that finally lead to conversion are displayed on the far right. You can view up to 20 touchpoints per path, going back to the touchpoints that led to the conversion.
