What is the 'frequency/capping' option?

The 'frequency/capping' determines how often (Frequency) the ad will be displayed on a publisher's website per individual user/IP/device at a given time (Capping).

Example: If your Frequency Capping (Device) is set to 3:24, the ad will be displayed 3 times a day per every individual user or device.

What is 'User-Based' frequency?

User-based frequency is based on cookie matching. When a single user visits a website and sees the ad for the first time, the ad server prescribes a cookie to a user.

For every follow-up ad view, the ad server checks whether this user cookie already exists in the system.

Please note: Some ISPs provide a single IP to a couple of users\devices so the traffic quantity may get lower.

What is 'Device' frequency?

Device frequency is based on the unique device fingerprint matching. When a single user visits a website and sees the ad for the first time, the ad server checks the number of device's parameters and prescribes it to a single user.

For every follow-up ad view, the ad server checks whether this device fingerprint already exists in the system.
