Impressions refer to the total number of times your content has been displayed on users’ screens, regardless of whether the user notices it or takes any action. This metric is critical to evaluate the effectiveness of your content distribution strategies and to understand how many viewing opportunities your content generates in relation to your potential audience. In addition to total impressions, it is useful to analyze how impressions vary over time and compare them with other metrics such as engagement and click-through rate to get a more complete picture of how your posts are performing.

In the case of social media advertising, impressions are also critical for assessing the visibility and reach of your posts and ads, allowing you to adjust and optimize your campaigns to improve their effectiveness.

Reach and impressions are often confused. While reach refers to the number of unique users who have viewed your content, impressions can include multiple views from the same user.
