Majority of advertisers worldwide will adopt attention-based metrics in 2023

For more insights and key statistics on the biggest trends in today’s most disruptive industries, subscribe to our Chart of the Day newsletter.

Key stat: Nearly 96% of advertisers worldwide will include attention-based metrics in at least some of their media buys this year, according to May data from DoubleVerify.

Beyond the chart:

  • Attention-based metrics act as a deeper performance indicator than viewability because they not only assess whether a consumer saw an ad, but also whether it grabbed their attention and resonated with them.
  • Contextual signals like dwell time, scroll speed, cursor location, and completion rates are most commonly used to measure attention. Controversial proprietary biometric data is needed to take it to the next level.
  • There are still major obstacles that stop attention-based metrics from replacing viewability, like their lack of standardization and unresolved questions around scalability and privacy compliance.

Use this chart:

  • Determine metrics for ad measurement.
  • Prioritize attention versus viewability.
