Typically this metric refers to the number of times that someone viewed your ad and hence is useful for understanding how many times individuals see your ads.
This metric shows you how many times people are seeing your ads, rather than just the total views of your ads. This provides insights into ad engagement and reach, for example; if an ad is being seen by people 5 times on average, a total number of views of 500 would equate to a reach of 100 people (approximately for reasons described in other guides within this group of articles).
