Description of Badges
Networks within Media Guide are organized alphabetically by badge. Four levels of badges exist within Media guide. They are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Badges indicate the depth to which each network is integrated with Free App Analytics, providing a quick and easy way for marketers to identify the right network with the highest integration. Each sequential badge incorporates all of the qualifications of the previous badge, as well as adding additional integration features.
Marketers interested in basic click tracking and install postbacks can effectively run with these networks.
Marketers interested in running reengagement campaigns can effectively run with these networks. Silver networks at this level of integration may also be integrated to support Traffic Verification rules on their postbacks.
Marketers interested in tracking impressions can effectively run with these networks. Gold networks may also offer cost data.
