When vi video start showing, the dashboard figure will start running. The important metric that decide how much you earn is the Fill Rate and Gross eCPM. Fill Rate is the percentage count Impressions over Requests. When requests keep increasing but impressions remain very low, Fill Rate will drop.
Fill Rate = (Impressions / Requests ) * 100
Gross Revenue = Gross eCPM * Fill Rate
Net Revenue = Net eCPM * Fill Rate
And yes, there will have some number showing up in Unmonetizable Requests. These are the ad requests coming from the country that is yet support by vi ai.
If fill rate remain low for a period of time, there are some reasons behind. First is the content might not targeting to preferred geographical location, which they are US, UK, Germany, Australia, France, Nordics, Benelux and SEA.
Second is the patient needed. Some country might need to have wait up to 4 weeks before the ad demand getting better (ref).
