Segment-to-Segment Overlap Report

Returns data on how many unique users are shared between your segments.
The Overlap reports in Audience Manager adhere to RBAC principles. You can only see segments from data sources that you have access to based on the RBAC User Group that you belong to.

Overview

The Segment-to-Segment Overlap report can help you:
  • Identify segments with high or low overlap, depending on your needs. Traits with high overlap give you a targeted audience, but fewer unique visitors. Traits with low overlap can be useful to reach a larger, unique visitor set.
  • Find unexpected overlap and use that information to build new, high-performance segments.
