  • D) It predicts your product group’s future impressions

The correct answer is:

  • C) It shows how many impressions your product group has received divided by the estimated number it was eligible to receive

Explanation: Impression share (IS) is the number of impressions you’ve received divided by the estimated number of impressions you were eligible to receive. Eligibility is based on your current ads’ targeting settings, approval statuses, bids, and quality. Data is available at the campaign, ad group, product group (for Shopping campaigns), and keyword levels.
