What is frequency capping?
Frequency capping is a feature that limits the number of times your ads appear to the same individual on the Mantis ad network.
Frequency refers to the average number of times a unique user sees your ad in a position of "1" over a given time period.
Consider implementing a frequency cap to control the maximum number of impressions you will allow an individual user to see your campaign per day or per hour.
Note: Only impressions that are considered viewable count towards frequency caps. An ad is counted as viewable when 50% or more of the ad shows for one second or longer for display ads and two seconds or longer for video ads. Learn more about viewable ad inventory here.
