1. Impressions

If you ever own a website or youtube channel, you probably come across this term. The impressions define how many times your website/adverts or video have shown to potential customers or viewers.

For example, if your website shows up on search results after someone searches your website name in search engines then it counts as one impression. Keep in mind that impressions will count every time it shows to customers no matter if it's clicked or not.

2. Click-through Rate (CTR)

After impressions show up, if someone clicks on it, it will count as clicked. So the number of times people click on an item or interest will be defined as the click-through rate or CTR. Meaning, the percentage of people actually clicking on your website or videos.

For example, “My youtube videos average click-through rate is 5.5%”.

3. Conversion

Even though if your customer clicked on your item (e.g. website adverts), some of them change their mind and don’t click to purchase. On YouTube, this can happen when viewers don’t watch your video after clicking on it.

So, the people who actually perform some action that you want are measured as conversation or goal. For example, signing up for email newsletter, website form submissions, purchases of products, phone calls, views of your video, and so on.
