Q: What are the LinkedIn Ads Reach metrics available in ReportGarden ?
Approximate Unique Impressions
The estimated number of unique member accounts with at least one impression. This metric is only available when the number of days in the date range is less than or equal to 92 days.
Reach for the day. if the date range is Oct1 to Oct7, the value will be average of daily reach values in the date range.
Reach for the last 7 days. if the date range is Oct1 to Oct7, the value will be average of (Reach from Sep25-Oct1, Sep26-Oct2, Sep27-Oct3, etc )
Reach for the last 30 days. if the date range is Oct1 to Oct7, the value will be average of (Reach from Sep2-Oct1, Sep3-Oct2, Sep4-Oct3, etc )
All of the above reach metrics are currently in Beta, which means LinkedIn is still testing and iterating on these metrics and their definitions and calculations might change over these iterations.
Also as per the LinkedIn Ads API, the Average Reach metrics (averageDailyReachMetrics, averagePreviousSevenDayReachMetrics, averagePreviousThirtyDayReachMetrics) are available only for requests grouped by campaign, and these metrics will soon be deprecated.
Q: Why are there viewing restrictions in place for certain ads and not for others?
A: In places where there are restrictions, it shows the LinkedIn login page as the preview. This happens as it is a limitation from LinkedIn API for previews of carousel posts containing multiple images
