How to use the Average Cost Per Click (CPC) Widget


  1. Select a date range using the date selector in the upper right-hand corner. A typical one to start with would be Trailing Year which is the last 12 months. Use the date selector to remove any months that you don’t want included (for example if you were not advertising during a given month you can exclude from the chart to not skew the results).
     
  2. Select one or more ChannelAdvisor accounts to include. Limiting to one account can help isolate the performance of a specific account or geography while including all your accounts can help see an overall view of performance.
     
  3. Choose the device types that you would like to see data for: All devices (black), desktop (blue), tablet (orange), mobile (purple).
     
  4. Evaluate the results. How does your Cost Per Click compare to competing advertisers? If your Cost Per Click is significantly lower than competing advertisers there may be some opportunity to increase traffic to your site by increasing your bids.
