Fill Rate

What is Fill Rate ?

The percentage of ads served based on the total number of page impressions. If you have 70 ads served for every 100 appearances, your fill rate is 70%, which explains it better. As a result, you take 70 and divide it by 100 before multiplying the result by 100%. Although a 100 percent fill rate would be ideal, it is nearly impossible to attain; therefore, the higher the fill rate, the better. Remember that the fill rate can fluctuate over time based on the ad inventory you're using. Inventory forecasting is easier with the fill rate formula since previous data is used to estimate future inventory demands.

While a low fill rate may suggest a lack of inventory or a sloppy inventory management system, one that's more than 100 percent may indicate that you're placing orders too often.
