This sounds like a simple question, so I'm hoping the answer is simple too. I have "approver" access in Target and have clicked around quite a bit, but can't find a way to monitor page views as it pertains to our contract for billing. (Our contract states that we are paying for ## millions/ page views per year.) In Adobe Analytics, this is available for server calls by month under "billing".
I have never seen any reporting on how many page views an account has used in a given time period directly in Target. They only way I have seen a report like this was by contacting my account rep. Somehow they can look it up. And really, the only time the number of page views we had used was ever really brought up was when we went to renew our contract. They used the previous years page views to outline the cost for the renewal.
I believe it counts any pageview anywhere an mbox fires, regardless if there is an activity running or not. For the 3rd party pixel, I would check with your account rep and have them monitor the pageviews and see if an additional mbox call will count against you.
Thanks LJ! And do you know if the page view count is a count of page views where there is 1 or more mbox calls, or is it only page views where a Target activity is running?
We are about to implement a 3rd party pixel on our pages to collect data and it causes an additional mbox call. I don't think this counts against us in billing, but it made me wonder if there is a way to monitor our usage periodically like we do with Analytics.
