Ads Insights

Ads reporting and analytics with Facebook's Ads Insights APIs.

  • Before you run ads, configure to track conversions. Conversions are events you want to measure such as someone visiting your site or adding an item to a cart.
  • Retrieve metrics using the Ads Insights API.

Before you can get data on your ad's performance, you should set up your ads to track the metrics you are interested in. For that, you can use URL Tags, Facebook Pixel, and the Mobile Conversions Endpoint.
