On the topic on Metrica Yandex has recently reported that advertisers now have an opportunity to add data on displays and income from video formats to Metrics' reports on monetization. It will allow understanding how income is connected with the visitor’s behavior on websites and to find new ways to increase feedback from platforms.

In Metrics there are 6 types of reports available, among them are advertising events pages, which show the most profitable materials; sources, which show where the most involved audience comes from; geography, which shows regions with the most favorable traffic for the website; devices and browsers display problems with commercials display; and presence of ad blockers.

Statistics arrives within a day. In any of six available reports on monetization, it is possible to choose the required platform.
