What is Viewability? What is Attention?

Understand and learn about viewability and attention and why these metrics are important in digital advertising measurement.

What is viewability?

Viewability is a digital advertising metric referring to ad impressions that meet minimum standards of time on screen, ensuring they are noticed by consumers. Standardized by Media Rating Council, the baseline for a display ad to be considered as "viewable", is if 50% of the ad creative is visible for at least one second in the viewable space of the browser.

In an era of bots and ad blockers, viewability is important for advertisers to determine the rate at which their ads are getting in front of an actual human, allowing them to optimize for true effectiveness instead of misleading inflated numbers.

What is attention?

Attention in digital advertising refers to the ability of an ad or campaign to successfully engage a user. Moat by Oracle Data Cloud believes attention is about more than just the click or the view—it's about the interaction, visibility, the length of time, and the environment.
