Google also shared updates to its lift measurement solutions including a new way to measure incremental conversions and an accelerated time frame to get faster results.
Conversion lift, that measures the impact of YouTube ads on website visits, sign ups, purchase and other types of conversions is now available in beta mode. Google has added accelerated flights to get the brand perception metrics faster with the ability to re-measure over time.
It is also reporting Search Lift and Conversion Lift results as soon as they become available, with daily reporting to see changes more frequently and over time.
