More about Link Clicks

One of the best ways to extract value for your business from ads is by including a link to a link either within or outside of the platform where you’ve posted your ad. By including a link in the body of your ad, you clearly express what it is you want users to do when they see your ad.

Links can direct users to your landing page, product page, or your business page on social media, for example. In addition to tracking Link Clicks, it is a good practice to also measure Click-Through Rate to further understand how many people are clicking your link compared to the number of times the ad is viewed.
